From the Apocalyptic World Series, this is Study #4. Created over the summer in 2017 in his studio in Zagreb, this is an extraordinary piece carved to show the beauty of the female form in a single piece of wood in earthy green. Lupino plays with the medium extending the head into a blooming flower. We all must face death even if some of us are still in the prime of life. The colourful patinated detail suggests a formal gown. Unlike other studies, this form is neither cowed or defiant but has an urbane sophistication in her preparation for doomsday.
