Creating a backdrop with the canvas, I incorporate the wooden mannequins to bring more life to the overall artwork. The figures express emotion and movement taking on a life of their own. The platform adds more depth while allowing the 3-D figures to cast shadows. These vary throughout the day as the light source changes. Multiple canvases are sometimes used together to create even more dimension. The figures become unique as each plays its own role in the story.
