UNSA Team RED Collaboration

UNSA Team RED Collaboration

This was my contribution to the UNSA Be RED “Getting to Zero” collaboration to raise social awareness for HIV and preventing transmission of HIV from mothers to babies.

My piece: I wanted to do something I hadn’t seen before, which was freehand sculpting a 3D face out of cookie dough. I also wanted to incorporate some hand painting. I was inspired by cemetery statues on a walk with my daughter, which began a loose idea where the mother had passed away leaving behind a healthy child. The piece evolved from there. The wafer paper ribbon connects mother to the earth and her child. ~ The portrait and base are iced with glaze, the bottom cookies are not iced at all. I hand painted directly on the “wood” cookie.
