About the Artist

Isabella Quack

Projects: I' m currently working on a multitude of new pieces. I have discovered that I like the idea of an artwork (traditional painting) being multifunctional,so I make paintings that have a fully functioning clockwork as part of their composition or a light source with an on/off switch. My main interest concerning painting techniques at the moment is glazing and how painting light underlines the mood of a piece. When it comes to sculpture, I am focussing on becoming more realistic in fabricating faux-taxidermy animals as well as achieve a more realistic portrayal of people, especially lifesize children (silicone skin with correct texture and coloration, hairpunching,acrylic eyes etc.) ​

Description

Galateia is composed out of bodycast elements (torso, arm, hand, face mask) and sculpted elements (head, face,crown, scales,). She consists of a total of eight parts that have been attached to one another and is hollow on the inside. The paintjob is mimicing drift wood. The tear in her chest is seethrough green,tinted resin that has a light installation with on and of switch in the back and glows bright green. Her face was sculpted in chavant NSP medium, was molded and cast in platinum silicone which was then painted. The eyes are handmade, with brows having been punched individually.The backboard is a combination of wood and resin with two lanterns one either side of the figure that form the second (orange glowing) light source of this piece. This artwork was inspired by the story of Galateia and Pygmalion as told by Ovid. The basic idea of an artist wishing for a statue to come to life was intriguing to me. In my interpretation she frees herself of her wooden shell, exposing the real girl underneath, imperfect but beautiful.
