An Alfresco interpretation of an Angel, the wings spread is a sign of welcome and warmth while, the dark background represents our darkest moments. The Alfresco style informs a well-kept secret for many, mental illness, that's been aound for millenia.
The copper wire represents the power of light both figurative and symbolic and how it helps us travel through the hard times. The modelling clay has a cracking affect, like plaster flaking off a wall, the copper wire around the Angel provides a powerful sense of self awareness. Sealed with epoxy resin lending stability to the clay, its innate imperfection amplifies the Alfresco style and age of the piece.
