Creating the Shameful Human Form

IMG_1445I have been wanting to create larger/ human sized pieces of work in order for the viewer to relate to my sculptures as human like. In this piece I have been developing the idea of the shameful body, and the idea of how Adam and Eve became aware of their nakedness when they sinned. I wanted this being to be covering itself up and cowering away in the corner being completely vulnerable to judgement. I created the first layers in dark red wax and painted veins on to be the under layer of the body on which I would build the bruised flesh on.
