About the Marble Veil project
Have you ever fallen in love with a piece of art? Something so beautiful and detailed that it captures your heart? If you go to google and type in 'marble veil bust' then you will see my favorite statue--a woman, carved from marble, adorned with a marble veil. She is the Veiled Virgin, by Giovanni Strazza.
Right there is the inspiration of this project.
My goal is to recreate and reinterpret the the intricacies of the Veiled Virgin in my own way, with a mix of fantasy and modern reality that will hopefully allow the women who model for me during this project to feel like their version of a princess or goddess (or both!). I plan to incorporate full body images that tell a larger story with striking portraits that still encapsulate the feeling that the original statue gives me every time that I see it.
