bleeps & bloops


My sculpture “The City” is complete.

After plugging away on this piece for a year on and off it’s finally finished. It’s a three dimensional sculpture involving found objects, paper pulp and paper-mache, feathers, scrap metal, acrylic paint, resin and a bunch of other stuff! It’s a little tricky to photograph. I wish I was a photographer at times like this, but I did the best I could.

It’s called “The City” because it’s about my first year and a half living in Brooklyn. There have been so many facets to my experience here. This sculpture is a bit like a beveled stone that is the emotional roller-coaster of my life as of late. This only became clear long after I began the piece and could look at it objectively.

"The City" - Acrylic paint, feathers, paper-pulp, bird skull, rinestones, cut velum, found metal scrap, paper-mache, pen, marker, resin, human hair, velvet, wire. 23" x 25" x 7"

Some day in the hopefully not too far future, you know before the apocalypse, or maybe after….
I will be all monetarily solvent and I will beg you to make me one of these amazing objects. You f-ing blow my skirt up every time.

Aw, you make me all blushy! I am working on some new stuff right now– four 12″ x 12″ pieces. So far the theme is Sci-Fi 3-D landscapes…we’ll see where it goes! They have to be done by the end of the month for a show so I have to bust some ass! I will post pics soon.
