paper sculptures-white paper-triptych of brides

After the three widows, I worked on three brides, the triptych of brides.
I have always enjoyed working with paper.
I like to work with only one color of paper at a time, in this case is white.
I modeled three faces on a ceramic mask.
I waited for the paper to dry layer after layer and then I unplugged the shape of the mask.

I worked around the faces with different types of paper.

I wanted a rhythm created with paper and white.

The three brides dance their happiness, the three brides are shrouded in white light, the three brides are united in the desire.
I applied the three faces with the paper on a white canvas.

It is amazing how many shades of white there may be in a piece of paper!
Rice paper, washi paper, Italian paper: how many different textures, different colors and many different softness!
To find a thousand of variations on the same theme is really interesting.
It is an exercise that I repeat every now and then: focus on these changes I find it almost mystical.
