OKOKOK. :) Sorry it took so long for me to find my way up here to post.
My name is John Borrero and I'm a mixed media artist in New York city. I work with found objects, and mostly do portraits of characters from mythology, folklore and theology.
This year, I worked on a piece for the Ripped Off show, called Gaea. After I was done with it, I decided that I wasn't really done. So, I reworked it into something that felt like a different being. She is called Seraph. Seraph is made from found metal, wood, wire, paper and fabric, along with antique doll parts and a picture.
A seraph is one of a class of celestial beings mentioned once in the Hebrew Bible in the book of Isaiah. Later Jewish imagery perceived them as having human form, and in that way they passed into the ranks of Christian angels. In the Christian Hierarchy of angels, seraphim represent the highest rank of angels.
This also represented my first venture into light... or rather using light as a main character in a piece. Seraph is situated above a lamp in this picture.
Here is another view... showing her face...
Thanks for visiting!
