Another Wrapped Item

[Food chopper, fabric, thread]
Title: The Everready Food Chopper

My explorations with wrapping continue. I've begun to work in something other than black fabric [the red fur seen in my open house piece, pictures soon]

[picture taken by Buddy Quinn, my works are the testicles and the red tipped tools] 

I haven't updated this in a while and I figured a picture of open house was the best way to get back on the wagon. As you can see I have a new set of tools with red furry tips. I made them so the fur just slips off. 

My testicle piece is kind of my current pride and joy. The assignment was on the body physical and I can never abandon the ideas of silly and gross at the same time. So there you have it. 

Things coming up you should be stoked about:

Senior thesis show Takers and Leavers, April 27, 301 Gallery. [This is one of my friend's shows, he and his peers are working hard for it, so be as pumped as I am!]

They Came and Never Returned: Rated B, May 2, The Bear Gallery. [This is a group show involving Brittanny Handiboe, Kyle Rowe, Merriweather McCarty, Emily Fung, Ashley McGonagle, Liz O'Toole, and myself. Obviously, the show is based on B genre horror movies. GO AND INVITE THE WORLD TO COME WITH YOU!]

[Winter 2011]

This is for the lost and found show. There's a light in it, I am just struggling with getting a decent picture in dark lighting.

Early Fall 2010

I called this "as I fell." It was done for the Grimm Fairy Tales show at my school. It's about chest height and covered in thick bartop varnish. Acrylic paint is underneath. 
Fall and Winter 2010
From top to bottom: plaster mold, handmade paper cast, cement cast, rubber cast, and wax cast. 

I have an affinity for sharp things, not because they are dangerous though. I think there's something really interesting about the way a knife or sharp object looks. Knives/sharp objects are no-nonsense, generally they get things done. They are direct, honest. I find comfort in that.

[Fall/Winter 2010, Chalk Pastels]

I never liked master copies. More than that, I never liked drawing the human body. I really loved the both this semester and I'm glad because I now officially appreciate John Singer Sargent more than I thought I ever would. I also appreciate the human figure much, much more than before.This is a copy of the sketch of Atlas and the Hesperides. 

Oh have I mentioned that I am feverishly in love with pastels? Because I can't get enough.
