If you look at the smoke, you will see the figure of a woman. All the vices of Las Vegas are represented. This piece comes to you after being commissioned from artist Neil Loeb in 2009 by Planet Holllywood Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas. It was in the Towers section of the resort, on the Las Vegas Strip. Neil Loeb's work consists primarily of limited edition cast paper bas relief structures, and also included limited edition paintings on canvas, carpets and, most recently, posters.Combining a flair for color with an interest in geometry, he attempts to create works, which are, in his words'mathematical, scientific, futuristic and primitive'. Loeb's cast paper pieces are often assemblages of different three-dimensional geometric elements composed on black backgrounds. These elements are cast over forms, which Loeb constructs out of a variety of materials, ranging from smooth masonite to ridged rubber sheet or window screen. Most elements have a raised outline and a textured interior. By working in small editions of 50 to 75, Loeb finds that he can'give the public a high quality original piece of artwork', while spreading out his production costs. Loeb elaborates on his use of cast paper by explaining,'The reason I use cast paper is simple: it becomes part of the work. The first time I formed my own paper and correlated it with the shapes I was using in the piece, I felt more in control and totally involved in the process of creating.
Before, I was doing only half the job, but with my own paper, the art is 100 percent me. This piece is quite heavy. It can also be picked up in Las Vegas at no charge.
