Scream


I've always loved Edvard Munch's "The Scream."  I decided to try my hand at sculpture...paper mache to be more precise.  It is easy to prepare and work with, and is a crazy amount of fun.  I probably destroyed it five or six times trying to find a gesture that was in keeping with the energy and raw emotion in the painting.  How powerful a word...SCREAM! This was for an alcove in our house.

  2. Thank you Jane. Not sure if it's the first thing an arriving guest in our house should see...a figure screaming. Might be sending the wrong message...ha!
