"God Oversleeps", 2002
I had the idea for this piece for over a year before I finally created it. I knew that I needed an angel to bang on the window to try to wake up God. I found the perfect model in Alli, who not only looks like an angel, but who acted the part with great enthusiasm, even though the day was very hot and humid. A little retouching in Photoshop gave her a new outfit and wings. The starry background and "universe-in-a-cauldron" comes from NASA photographs taken with the Hubble telescope.
