battlestar galactica - cylon 6 - tricia helfer - oil on canvas by 

New portrait of Battlestar Galactica character Cylon 6 – the 6th generation autonomous cybernetic organism, portrayed by actress Tricia Helfer.

I wanted a new take on the stylized screen goddess, and had recently discovered the Battlestar series. Several of the characters faces struck me as having that epic dramatic quality.

I’m not sure if Helfer has had deep training as a Ben Geserit witch, years of ballet practice, or perhaps a strong shakespearean theatre apprenticeship, but one senses a discipline of craft underneath the beautiful exterior… some of the same quality Ive admired in Michelle Yeoh, Martin Csokas and other actors with that strong onscreen presence.

Painted with a somewhat camp pop aesthetic in a very traditional layered manner in oil on canvas. dimensions around 45×35cm.

Please contact me if you would like to own an original, in the same series, or commission a custom piece. If you happen to be in Melbourne I’m happy to autograph a RedBubble print, which will enhance its value as a collectors item.

    Don’t follow the show but love the painting. You have portrayed such deep emotion with this creation.

  • Tony, nightjar, Michael

    Thanks, I really appreciate your comments…

    I wanted to portray her as being a little more intense, which is a bit of a risk to take with such a pretty face :]
