It took me a little while to understand the connection between the 'food' sculptures, the boxes and the little faceless poppets. It mostly has to do with the 'language' particular to my work. I could bore all of us to twitches with details, or I could just point out that each must express itself without the benefit of faces.
I can live with that.
I've grown quite fond of "Little Pink's Bunny. I've known her for a very long time, and am pleased to be sculpting her likeness. The edition will be released officially in spring, but for now I'm working out the details in proofs.
With a Little Red Poppet, for scale:
The first background layers for "Strange Roads." The first two paintings for the series, "Strange Birds" and "Strange Fish", are done on antique window frames Ben and I found in Cathedral City. We reproduced the frame for this painting, as we'll do for the remainder of the series. Ben built it, I aged it to match the others.
It was like time travel.
No, not at all.
But, writing notes at the end of the day and realizing it's after midnight...is.
