Granny Smith

posted in: process | 0

It’s been a long time since I’ve posted art, but I’m going to make it a regular practice again. I’ve found it difficult to be creative since the pandemic started and felt less connected with the work I’ve been making. It’s important to keep creating, though, especially when feeling uninspired. I’m not sure what direction I’ll grow in, but this is the art I was working on before the future felt so uncertain.The project is sculpting breasts onto store-bought decorative foam fruit and veggies. Technically, it’s a great color/ texture matching challenge. I enjoy matching the flawed finishes, putting a perfect handmade detail on something clearly fake and mass produced. Conceptually, I’m interested in how women’s bodies are often compared to fruit, in playing with the juxtaposition of still lifes and naked women in art.I’m still deciding on a series title. So far, I’ve got Feminine Fruit or Breastables. What do you think? This Granny Smith has already sold, but there’s more fruit in the works.  Would folks be interested in prints in the future?

Both colorways of Gumheads have sold out!

Thanks so much to everyone who brought one home. 🖤 I hope they bring you good luck and the best kind of mischief. This is the last of these colors, but I’ll be doing more variants in the future. Glow-in-the-Dark, maybe?! Keep an eye out here.

Gumheads are elemental spirits. They begin as forgotten wads of gum, stuck under tables and chairs. Most bubblegum is ordinary, but every once in a while, through a twist of fate (and a little saliva), old gumwads awaken as mischievous sprites.Sticky and malleable, they love to steal and hoard tiny objects. They’ve got your DNA in them, but gumheads aren’t always friendly. They have a penchant for chaos when left unattended, but are easily won over with gifts and attention. Under the right circumstances, gumheads are fun companions and can bring good luck and adventure.

Casting a Woolly Caterpillar

posted in: process | 0

This is a split mold, which means I poured it as a single block and cut it open for casting. Check out the below picture to see the original sculpt set up for molding. I put vents in the middle to prevent air bubbles. The blocks beneath the caterpillar are reservoirs to make pouring the resin easier.

Get your own cutie this Saturday at Galeria Regina, 5-9pm.

Sneak peak

Sneak peak at some blossoms waiting patiently for the art show. I can’t wait to take some good pictures of these!  One of my favorite things about mold making getting to experiment with different looks on one sculpture.  Each flower is a little different and completely one of a kind.These and more will be at Journey to Terra Flora, opening July 13th at Galeria Regina. Hope to see you there!
