Pulp Idols is a series of nine new mixed media works on wood produced by Sya Warfield over the past year. In this turbulent time, Warfield has chosen to create portraits of key figures who have effected change within our societies and cultural lives. Each work utilizes a photographic pulp transfer process combined with water-based pigment inks, acrylic inks, crackle paste medium, metal leaf, vintage newsprint and spray paint. Influenced by the Japanese notion of Wabi Sabi, deliberate imperfection, the faces are surrounded by an aura of vibrancy and layered texture. Overall, the series invites viewers to reflect on the complexity of life, the passing of time and the ongoing ripples of influence we experience and can exert positively in the world.
