Over the Top - Original Mixed Media Neuro Art 16x20
Over one month in the making this piece has handstitched beads of varying sizes, including pearls, sequins and gemstones at the center based roughly on one of my brain scans from an MRI in January of 2021.
After completing the brain in handstitched beads, I embroidered around it with thread, then stretched the canvas onto a frame and painted the unstitched portion of the canvas. I topped that off with a glued river of beads that forms a halo around the brain, then added glitter to a topcoat and painted neurons around the halo and finally finished it off with glued cabochons and Swarovski crystals.
It's all a bit 'Over the Top' and very shiny and sparkly - aspects that are difficult to capture in photography. There are so many different textural elements in this piece that it won't reproduce well so there won't be prints of this one. It's one of a kind and there will never be another just like it.
16x20 on gallery wrap stretcher bars, it is wired for hanging on the back and needs no frame. The sides are painted white and it is ready to ship. Original artwork ships free via Priority Mail to the U.S. and is insured.
