This piece was finished weeks ago- but I was waiting for the weather to cooperate for a proper photoshoot- and this morning it finally did 😊
“Fertile Form I” – Original sculpture by MJ Seal. Paper ephemera, old paintings, PVA glue and acrylic paint. Approximately 22″ x 23″. C. 2019
This has -easily- been the most time consuming project of my life. I know I say that with every sculpture but this really took forever. I think the results of my labor were well worth the effort though 🤗
It truly looks alive and applying the colors in thin transparent layers really adds to that effect- the colors meld into each other beautifully and seamlessly.
I originally envisioned this piece with a matte finish but after applying the last glaze I decided I liked the glossy finish so much I’d leave it as is. It glistens like something just dragged from the sea- or a UFO
Note that the colors in real life are even more vibrant than they appear in these photos- they are not exaggerated.
It really glows on the wall 😊
