Marvelous Strange Art Show

I'm very excited to announce I'm co-curating the Marvelous Strange art show with Annetta Black of Odd Salon.

The Marvelous Strange gallery show is a month long exploration of curiosities and wonders of the natural world and the artistic mind. The inspiration comes from the Wunderkammers, or Curiosity Collections, of Renaissance Europe.

The show is at the 5 Months Gallery: 989 Mission St., San Francisco.
The opening is Friday, March 4th, 7-11pm.

My co-curator and I are both building large, immersive installations. Mine is a speculative fiction piece in which a specimen from a made-up family of organisms, the Mirabilidae or WunderKreatures (as they are colloquially called) is put on display. This is a mixed-media sculptural and assemblage piece with supplemental writings and diagrams by the artist and other literary collaborators.

We will feature ten other artists that explore their own interpretation of a curiosity collection; focusing on the inner and the outer world.

A Project From Hell

I recently completed my physically largest project to-date. This was a sculpture, painting, AND costuming project all rolled into one and put on steroids: two larger-than-life sized puppets for the metal band From Hell.  The top half alone stands 5 feet high. With the tassles hanging below, they are 8 feet tall.

This provided me a timely opportunity to experiment with new techniques, such as large-scale foam sculpting, which was such a pain in my tiny home studio. (oh the horror, oh the mess.) But well worth it as I move into larger sculpture territory almost right away for my upcoming installation in the Wunderkammer show. More posts about that as that develops. But for now, enjoy these pictures (from my 'commissions: albums, shirts, etc.') and some really creepy video that the frontman of the band sent me of the puppets hanging in their new home base in the Oakland Music Complex.

Faces were made with a custom-sculpted positive mold, and then each was hand painted.

The insignia down the middle was pieced together with separate appliques and hand-painted to fit the final vision.
