A planet with toxic chemicals in the water and a choking atmosphere, but otherwise nothing like Earth.

Cool. Never thought of bondo as an art medium - must be more toxic than white oil paints. (Bondo is what you use to seal cracks in your walls, right?)

Did you alter this photo on your computer? Boost the contrast or something?
Can we see a picture with normal lighting?
This high contrast may look good, but it forces you to see the picture and not the actual releif. Both of which (at least to me) are important.

ugly lighting better view



this is roughly 16 x 10 inches. it stands up by itself as the bottom half projects forward acting as a stand. i really wanted to paint this and give it better detail but it really feels like something left in a burning building. this gives it power in some strange way. you can probably see where the arm of the victim on the table has cracked. that is the nature of bondo unfortunately.. i'll probably work more slabs of bondo into this to define the sculptural elements of the giant face more. however the vague undefined areas seem to provoke something disturbing that i like.. maybe i'll leave it alone.... this piece was made to fulfill a painting project in which i had to make a painting and another the same size which was three dimensional of the same thing. sorry don't know where the painting of this is...
