48 x 60 / Diamond collection / SOLD

This work is a 60- by 48-inch mixed-media/acrylic-on-canvas piece that is the first of a diamond series.

J.M. sent me three bags of offcuts, diamonds and diamond dust with a total weight of just over 100 carats, including 500 hand-cut round diamonds with a minimum of 17 facets cut and polished on each one.

I wanted to draw a metaphor between the value of diamonds and at the time, the value of mask/toilet paper. It was during the height of Covid-19…..hand sanitizer, mask, toilet paper, were all selling out. It was wild to see the whole region shift as a large singular organism.
