Triumph of Death
by Rhonda Libbey
Where is thy sting, O Death!
Grave! where thy victory?
The clod may sleep in dust beneath,
The spirit will be free!
This gilded skull is a poly-stone replica of a real human skull with my design in gold leaf and oil paint. The jaw is not connected, so it can be displayed with or without it.
I grew up in an unusual old farmhouse where the decor was lavish and art nouveau. I was surrounded by stylized beauty indoors and natural beauty outdoors. I began my artistic journey when I was 6 years old, beginning with drawing, and I have never stopped. To be an artist is the only thing I ever wanted to be, it is the only way I have ever known.
I have been a professional illustrator and graphic designer since 1996 and I have had the good fortune to work on some cool projects and I have shown in some great galleries.
My most recent works are created traditionally in oil paint and gold leaf, with oil paint layered in glazes on top of the metal to achieve a luminous effect. I am drawn to the contrasts of delicate and bold that both oil paint and gold leaf possess.
A few you might have missed!
