Some of the remaining art from Journey to Terra Flora will be in the second room at Galeria Regina through October 26th. A new show, “The Mind’s Eye,” opens tonight, 5-9pm, featuring artists Kate Silvis, Sam Wethern, and Cameron Wethern. I’m looking forward to seeing what they’ve made. Hope to see you there!

Another stage in the Golden Toothed Beauty build

I only had a couple weeks to make this, so it was a lot of experimenting and pushing forward without all the planning I normally do. Here I was trying out a flexible rope and foam stem, which would’ve made it more like a snake flower. I ended up going a different direction with it, but I’m still kinda into this idea. What do you guys think? Are there snake flowers in my future?

They’re made out of L200, a closed-cell foam used in puppet and costume fabrication. It’s heat formable, can be carved/ sanded, and it’s easy to paint. I used this foam for most of the flower, finishing the surface with neoprene and acrylics to give it a resilient rubbery skin.

There’ll be an encore reception at Galeria Regina August 17th 5-9pm if you missed seeing this toothy beast the first time around.
