LURE Angels
From the Mineshaft Bar later turned the Lure in New York

LURE Angels Sculptures by Muriel Castanis Unlike traditional marble sculpture, Castanis’ sculptures create a sensation of floating. Castanis began using materials such as epoxy and resin after years of experimenting at home with rags and Elmer’s glue. “The technique I have invented to create this is achieved by immersing cloth with epoxy and draping it wet over a chosen form. When hardened and the form removed, the objects’ suggested persona resides within the void and the surface folds become sole focus.” * These angels had been on display at the Mineshaft, a leather bar in the meat packing district of New York City. The angels were later moved to The LURE until it closed its doors in April, 2003.
