Famous Faces, Sculptural Cubism
This style just happened when I wasn't particularly trying to come up with something new but painting and letting it just happen. I started a painting of Norma Jean, a young Marilyn Monroe, and as I painted I began breaking the image into blocks of color and shape. I went with it and the first piece, I call sculptural cubism, was created. The name comes from an artist friend of mine who thought the images looked like they could be sculpted. It is a humorous and literal take on the cubism works of Pablo Picasso and others.
