Gypsy nobody's child by Sleetwealth Gypsy nobody's child by Sleetwealth
Gypsy is a 4&1/2 " bust polychromed with oil paint ,pastels and ink. Her hair is slate grey fur( naturaly shed) The nitch on her chest contains a picture of a screaming monkey and a rough crystal. Both are behind a rectangle glass lense and can be removed.

Gypsy is a rootless urchin ,unwanted but, free. She cannot comprehend love or comfort or rules. She is a little thief and beggar... a tummble weed.

own her before Im too famous for you to afford.... [link]

There is something about your work which verges upon redemptive; she tells a real story and she offers her hurt and her vulnerably with such 'presence' and such force that she takes all rational and defensive thoughts away...she helps you to fall at her feet and surrender all wrongs...

There is story in my work and symbol that resonate for me.Thats all I look for.

(earthiness)filth ,decay,hunger,lonliness and vunerabilty. relieved by a veil like dream realm, inner light,strength,beauty, spiritual powers.

If ever i have seen a sculpture that trascends its medium, and expresses sadness in the eyes...you are the one who has done it.

You are so damn good Nita!
I had to comment here as well... cause
I have completely fallen in love with her!!!!!
She is sooooo alive... I mean she has to be..
she looks like she is breathing, VERY realistic
features and her expression is SO REAL!!!!!

May I say that even though I cannot afford her,
I feel that her price is very low!
She is a breathtaking piece of art!!!


Out of words

Thank you Yovanka:)
I am trying to make some of my work more acessable to own. Im realy not sure how to price now that I dont have the auction format! Its really hard.

Maybe later when Im less strapped myself we can work out a payment plan for something.
