Acquired by American Legacy Fine Arts directly from the artist
Edition 2 of 6
“This seven-inch portrait bust is the subject of an ongoing project to experiment with surface treatments and presentation. The first casting was an artists' proof which is a wall hanging plaster on a wooden backdrop, stained with tea and ink (a treatment I use often with plaster pieces). Two bronze castings (editions of 1 /6 and 2/6) exist with a green patina. The following editions will vary in color. The piece was modeled from imagination and is intended to be ambiguous in identity, gender, age, and expression in order to explore how different treatments will affect the emotional content and perception of the piece.”
— Alicia Ponzio
The artist's proof was sold to benefit the Portrait Society of America at their annual Art of the Portrait Conference in Atlanta, GA and is held in a private collection in Austin, TX.
