Wax Cult is a series of images exploring material creation lighting and composition. It centers on a custom material I built to be gold streaked through wax.
I made use of 3D scans of famous sculptures to be the canvas for this exploration. Then the task was to map this material on to them and light them in a way that gave life and personality to the form in this new context.
