"Crime Wave"

Matt Large's avatar Matt Large

"Crime Wave" is a stylized, 1940's-era, scene of a crime. The scene is nestled beneath the foreboding silhouette of the Brooklyn Bridge and has a cast of 5 characters. They are the victim of the crime, two uniformed Police Officers, a paparazzo and a plain-clothed man. They are all in the process of investigating the death of a beautiful young lady. Crime Wave is a "Who done it?". This romanticized graphic piece is 13 feet tall by 9 feet wide by 3/8 of an inch in depth. It is meticulously welded out of thousands upon thousands of steel rods in a graphic drawing style and is layered with many thicknesses of metal screen to create tonal values. A giant light box display will perfectly light the scene. A one-of-a-kind 1940′s True Crime-themed wire sculpture will be awarded to the viewer/ detective that comes up with the story that best explains the scene. Fledgling detectives can email their theories to the artist and the prize will be awarded shortly after ArtPrize is over.
