Coloured Abstract Girl`s Torso sculpture, Papier Mache Mixed Media Painted Colourful female Torso Chest statue sculpture Wall Hanging for sale For Indoors Inside Interior decoration in the House or Home By the Award Winning Sculptress Christine Palamidessi who writes of this Unique sculpture... "Think of this work as a scholarly Wonder Woman dropped into a positive future. The sculpture pays homage to a literary force from the 1920`s--Brazilian poet Mário de Andrade who ushered modernism into his country--and the well-known beauty of Brazilian women, since the artist formed the sculpture inside an imprint of a São Paulo woman`s torso. Color and shapes painted on sculpture`s surface call to mind the clean brightness of internationally active artists Romero Britto and Beatriz Milhazes. Inside a hidden benefit: a poem.
This sculpture is a lot of fun, it’s right out there, while at the same time it reaches sideways into history, geography and the contemporary art scene. Like the poem it is named after "Hallucination City," my wall sculpture is full of non-sequiturs and fragments. It’s partially fragmented, pulled apart. Lyrical. Campy. Joyful and melancholy. Otherworldly. Very musical. Brazil has always been and remains a country that fascinates me: the people, the literature, the music, the river, the jungle, the water and lack of water, the wildlife. I have been blessed with a long line of Brazilian models and muses.
