This homage to the iconic Marilyn Monroe honors her memory with the only appropriate building material for such a cultural giantess: light. Her skin is made entirely of collaged images of lighting fixtures and bulbs. The piece is made of hand cut and torn paper adhered to a cradled masonite panel with matte medium. She flaunts her sexy, sophisticated, fun-loving persona with one wrench thrown in the works: she's a robot. The sides are finished with a continuation of the background imagery. The work is ready to hang.
