Lucy Fur - Metal Light Box
Inspiration is a funny thing. Sometimes it just comes out of the darkness like a lightning bolt .
Somebody in the USA went to a Halloween party as a ghoulish playboy bunny girl with a bullet hole in her forehead. I saw the image on Myspace and I liked the tears on the face and I asked if it was okay to use that image for a piece called DEATH MASK.
A bit later when I was making an image of Liz Taylor, I recreated the drips on the face and made the second in the nightmare series, which was just before Liz Taylor died.
Now I spend a lot of my time painting tears on portraits, inspired by that first jpeg on Myspace.
The perspex is sprayed on the perspex layer of the light box, creating a diffused effect when it is turned off. I wanted it to have 2 different looks when on and off. The light box is powered by LED’s inside so it’s super efficient and is made of brushed aluminium so it looks super cool....
