50″ tall x 12″ x 12″, mixed media with an emphasis on original Belgium metallic paints and powders.
She is built into her stand so you can walk around her and see the transformation into flight.
Acanthis is the first piece in the series “I’ll Fly With You.” She was given the ability from the Gods to transform into a bird after experiencing the tragedy of her brother’s brutal death.
I hope this piece will explore new sensations and awaken the idea of possibilities in dark times.
