Painted Sculpture For Benefit

I was asked to participate in The Dogs & Cats Art Auction of New York to Benefit NYC's Homeless Animals. A unique exhibit that featured twelve cast-stone dog and cat statues, hand-painted by local artists.

The theme of my work “Oreo” focuses on a notorious case of animal cruelty in New York City

I created this work in memory of Oreo and as a statement against animal cruelty. The flesh of the statue with its grimacing faces and twisting lines, reveal the madness and pain of a tortured soul. The form, in sharp contrast, stands noble and proud.
