Sebastian (relic), 2019

A digital version of my cast bronze Sebastian (relic) with a verdigris urine patina. Referencing both Warhol and Picasso, the physical bronze head was buried for 6 months in the garden at the Tom of Finland Foundation in Los Angeles and visitors were asked to urinate on the spot where the bronze head was buried. The uric acid within the urine reacts with the copper in the bronze prematurely ageing it and turning it a blue-green. The work was commissioned for a private collection and it’s rumoured that the Romans would utilise this same method, albeit with slave boys, to achieve a look that was akin to their beloved Greek bronzes.
