I don’t even know… I’d say it was a work-in-progress but it’s more a work-in-regress. It was intended to become a rabbity lump on a ceramic snake pedestal but it balked and it whined about its entire existence but especially about the snake pedestal until I relented and reassessed it. I think it may be better as a freaky little wall piece. At the moment I plan to flock it white and grey and attach either multiple sewn bunny ears or stuffed bunny feet ‘charms’ to the bottom. But I also got the idea for future piece to make foggy red resin eyes for an albino bunny effect (I know, right!). Will post some follow-up pics soon, unless we just can’t resolve our differences.
Our variation of “Fur” at Winter Rusiloski and Angel Fernandez’ gallery deadWEST gets some great coverage on Glasstire. Barbara Koerble writes about the alternative gallery space, deadWEST and the artists in the spring 2016 exhibition, Open Range.
Jill and I got three works in the Rethinking Ceramics exhibition in Rosenberg, Oregon and exhibition catalog. The show was juried by the awesome surreal ceramist Heidi Preuss Grew. We got our catalogs in the mail and are geekin’ out.
Christian deLeon and I are trying a ‘trading’ sort of collaboration. He’s taken my scanned doodles to make new digital collages, and I’ve taken his digital print scraps and am adding nesting doodles. It’s a lot of fun working off of his shapes and the first time I’ve ever used my drawings as something more than a planning process.
I’m working with Aaron Lara-Martinez on a video-projection installation project involving rooster-piranhas, false mirrors, and a filmed ritual with animal-masked participants. My lamb mask is almost finished. It started as paper mache and polymer clay but later I reinforced it with Magic Sculpt and Fiberglass/Resin.
Inspired by the UPS bill for shipping “Hoarder” to Georgia and back, Jill and I are making some small-scale surreal objects that we can afford to ship! I’m making a grape-cluster decanter form out of polymer clay ‘animal eyes’.
Jill and I have been working hard to finish our new wordpress webpages (which means she’s been spending hours at my house hijacking my ridiculous neon-checkered snuggie). We had opposing schedules all year so it’s been nice to work together again. And I get the snuggie back when she leaves.
