'Chasing Light' : (2 piece Exhibit)

Martin Thomas Smyczek II's avatar Martin Thomas Smyczek II

'Chasing Light'; a two piece exhibition. Signature piece: 'Into The Light' - a (barn wood framed) portrait of hyper-realistic large scale pastel landscape artist Zaria Forman, created STRICTLY by using her used, pastel stained latex gloves : a portrait of her, using her gloves, that she wore to protect her hands from the chemicals in the pastels, while drawing her works. Her latex gloves have been adhered to a used piece of plastic banner material, that has been stretched and gallery wrapped over a reclaimed custom wooden frame. This piece is 48" x 70.25" x 1.75", took over 500 hours to complete over 1.5 years, and consists of over 110 exhausted latex gloves. The complimentary 2nd piece; a limited edition framed Print of 'Newfoundland 1' as an example of her work, and how the gloves were used/stained originally. Having a print of her work, where she wore the gloves, alongside 'Into The Light', you'll experience her work, and the portrait, which only the gloves were used in. @mtastwo
