The Art Factory is an artist collaborative I belong to in Paterson, NJ. They took over a giant old silk mill and turned it into art space. This mannequin is one of the public art installations put in place in just one of the many galleries. Her pose just reminded me of the old Twilight Zone episode where the mannequins come to life.. So I did a little light painting around her and this wonderful grunge setting.
My wife and I decided to get creative and try some UV painting in the new studio space.. The UV looked cool on it’s own, but when I converted to B&W it really popped off the screen.. So here’s wifey looking creepy, yet dark & sexy.
The rock wall behind is the side of the mountain the room butts up against forming a natural wall & fantastic backdrop.
