mixed media photograph with resin and found objects,
image: 36 x 24 inches overall with frame: 42.25 x 32.75 inches
Provenance: Private collection from a former New Yorker now living in the Bay Area, CA. While the owner was in New York he was fashion runway model as well as a model for many high-end print campaigns. He was also a nightclub owner at thsi time. The photographer, and friend of the model Mazzucco asked him o help with his gallery launch in Southhampton, NY by Andy Valmorbida. The current owner was in Montauk the week before Mazzuccos gallery opening and drove to his home to see his work. I ended up staying for the week. I didnt just help promote and pull my celebrity contacts for him but I also helped assist him in pouring the resin for each piece. I was given one of the pieces (Giselle) by Andy and the other Raph and I made specifically for my wall (of Mayra who I am dear friends with) when given the choice of any image that is housed in a one of a kind frame. I helped with his next show in LA and promote his book Culo, produced by Jimmy Ilovine, Interscope records founder Sean Combs.
