This is a resin sculpture containing an X-ray of my neck that I built roughly 9 years ago. It was part of my thesis show as an MFA candidate at CCAD. After graduation, it appeared in a group show I was part of at the Riffe Center in downtown Columbus, Ohio. Since then it has been wrapped up and inside a box in storage.
After digging this and a couple of other sculptures out this week, I noticed that they appear to have deepened in color over time. When I first built them they had a slight yellowish hue even though they are transparent. But now they appear yellower, more of an amber color. The above photos were taken using a light box, which is how I have typically displayed sculptures like this. The below photos were taken outside in the sun.
The change in color of the aged resin becomes more apparent in the direct sunlight, as seen above. In some areas (such as the upper left of the above and the reflections on the side of the sculpture) it appears almost orange.
Here’s a detail shot of the side of the resin. Some of its layers are visible here.
