woman with laundry basket

May is going to be about Adelaide in my People and Places album - yes- I am behind - ha ha - what's new?
This week I will be posting photos from the Museum and Art Gallery.

HANSON, Duane
United States, 1925 - 1996

Woman with a laundry basket
1974
surface paint oil, cardboard, resin, talc, fibreglass, fabric, plastic, cardboard packaging

This 165cm Woman located at the Art Gallery of South Australia in Adelaide was not made by sculpting or moulding. Hanson used direct casting from live humans and coloured polyster resins to match the skin. Real accessories such as hair, clothes, shoes, jewerlly and others were used to merge the boundaries between art and life.
Very interesting. I like your presentation.

She reminds me of one of those living statue street artists. I expect her to move any second and say 'Boo'

she was very realistic - I had to look twice and had a big urge to touch her to make sure - I stood there for a bit seeing if she moved hahahaha
