Hulu Girl #1
This “Hula Girl” was originally titled Party Girl, because her outfit is reminiscent of days past of raving and wearing clothes in public that no one should really wear outside of the beach. Her green outfit is made from small clipping of paper, and the lights shining behind her are done with a yellow tissue paper so you can see the background slightly. Her hair is all done with bright colors of other models hair from magazines and her skin is done the same way. For some progress shots of this fancy lady being made- check out the process link from the home page.
This original is sold framed and matted in an gold/ochre matting with a brown frame, professionally framed at Micheal’s framing.
Every Fancy Lady in her collection is made out of tiny pieces of recycled magazines and used catalogs. The skin color and hair texture is created by cutting up old advertisements of different models. This effect was done to create an element of this being essentially any woman. Magazines used vary and some examples include People, Sports Illustrated, Martha Stewart, Home and Garden, Essence and Vouge.
Currently, completed originals are scanned by Terry at Artist's Resource Group in NE Minneapolis, where his ever-improving technology has paved the way for textured reproductions. However, the reproductions for this Fancy Lady were done by Mike Wolfgang with CGS Technologies, based out of Minneapolis. The dimension in this 12x18 reproduction is still apparent, but not quite as much so as other reproductions available. Satisfaction guaranteed.
