Model 3
acrylic and enamel on unprimed canvas
72 x 52 inches

This is the third in a series of paintings I made from a single image of a model walking the runway at a J.A. Anderson show. I was captivated by her fur tunic and orange, plastic pants. Star Wars comes up in the studio quite a bit and it just felt right to use the Storm Trooper helmet here. What appears to be a yellow sash comes from my obsession with Tony Smith's yellow Light Up sculpture.
