3D Paper Sculptures ‘The Golden One’ by Amanda Deadman
Amanda Deadman‘s 3D paper sculptures are captivating and full of joyous colour! This version of ‘The Golden One’ is painted in a regal purple colour. As with all her other fish-inspired pieces, Amanda captures the movement, reflections and shimmer of shoals of fish beautifully.
She paints various sized individual fish in purple, pink and white watercolour. The whole shoal is purple except for one golden fish swimming against the flow. This inspired the title of this piece ‘Go Your Own Way’ which is also the famous song by the hugely talented Fleetwood Mac! Each fish is shaped by hand and mounted on a small foam board plinth to enhance the three-dimensional effect. This helps to cast interesting shadows depending on where the light is coming from.
The whole piece is framed in a glazed (Perspex) white deep box frame.
Bespoke colour combinations and sizes are available on request.
Materials used: Watercolour and metallic watercolour on watercolour paper, foam board, and a white deep box frame glazed with Perspex.
N.B. The image shown is an example of the series. Amanda makes each individual piece by hand, therefore every one is unique and will vary slightly from the one shown.
The artwork is framed in a white glazed (Perspex) deep box frame.
