“The New Frontier” is a nod to the images and poster boards from the 50’s and 60’s that I remember from school and comic books. It is part of my exploration of the theme “Circuit Boards for a Civil Society”.
These unique wire pieces are full of imagination, wonder, and delight. Each one is individually hand-crafted with steel wire. The color is added through a novel technique of applying gloss gel medium to a taped-in area, allowing it to dry until it becomes a clear surface on which to paint, then painting the color on the reverse side of the sculpture. Resin is added to the front of the colored areas.
