Luciana NOVO - Plasticine Polar Bear

Argentinian-born painter and sculptor, Luciana NOVO, creates work with a commentary on our modern excesses and the "accumulative character of the culture of the masses." (See luciananovo.blogspot.com.)

Her polar bear head could easily fall into the category of human involvement where the demise of polar bears, as displayed in trophy form, becomes the ultimate hedonistic triumph.

I love her use of varied color within the  manipulated plasticine, resembling that of dripping paint (or even melting snow).
