This is a three-piece mixed media series that I finished late last week. I call it “Vicious Little Cycle”; the series consists of “Dirty Untruths” (5 x 5 on canvas), “Festering Gossip” (5 x 5 on canvas), and “Haunting Regret” (8 x 10 on canvas), the three key ingredients to any vicious cycle. Those of you who follow Katie Cahill Art on Facebook got to see a little peek of this project when I finished sculpting the skulls a couple of weeks ago. Just in case you didn’t get to see that post, here is what the pieces looked like at that stage.
This is a bit of a story series, but the story is yours to interpret. The two smaller pieces use lines from “Hamlet” and the larger piece uses lines from a vintage children’s book that I have kicking around. As you can see, these pieces are done in the same manner that the last few personally generates pieces I have done are. I have plans for three more pieces done in this way and then I will probably move on to other techniques/forms for a while.
Here are the three pieces individually and I will follow those with some close-up detail shots.
This piece will be listed for sale in my etsy shop soon! You will be able to access that shop by going to my store page here and clicking the piece that you want to purchase.
