Artist Statement: This piece is inspired by a type of sea slug, called the sea angel. The sea angle is a delicate creature, being light and elegant, with a round translucent body, and an orange glowing core. It gracefully floats through the ocean using its angel-shaped wings for movement. This piece uses layers of organza, LEDs, fiber optics, magnets, and moldable plastic to imitate the ethereal glow of sea angles. The LED lights are lined in the bodice, with fiber optic strings carrying the lights through the skirt. The white armor made from moldable plastic contains patterns and designs of the sea angel’s shape.
Artwork Dimensions: 50 inches tall X 24 inches
