'BiPolar' my favorite!
This piece mimics my 'unique mental condition.'
We grew very close over the 6 months it took to bring him (they) to life.
Believe it or not, this piece was sold to a pharmaceutical dealer in Montreal.
Look closely at the two disticnt pesonalities conveyed in each of the two heads. Inspired by a condition, popularly referred to as 'Manic Depression,' this piece speaks volumes to the many masks, emations and what seems like distinct pesoanlity shifts. I fo one, alternate between these 'characters' frequently throughout a day.
The wings have 8 individual coats of 'opalescent' paint glazes, so as you move around the piece, not only does it shine, it also changes color! Cool huh!

the size well - approximately 6' across, 5' tall and took almost 6 months to complete.
