Morphing Meat and Can-Can Dancers




Wooden thighs

What I finished in a semester with mainly a chisel. They were attached to a split tree trunk. More work on that project later. (Sculpture 4)

Some of what remains of the ceramic breasts


I made seven pairs, then broke them all for a performance piece. These were the only surviving nipples.

The photo was taken through a condom. No real connection between the two despite that which is obvious...

The Postcard painting

It looked naked without the drips, but I might take them out and paint a more detailed wood grain.

Painting from Diorama

The painting still needs some work. Getting the perspective right on that rug was tricky. Something to come back to.

Impasto portrait of Jasper




Self Portrait

Beginning of the second impressionist self portrait, this time with a monochromatic color scheme. (Painting 2)

Self Portrait

Impressionist style. Painting 2.

Still Life from Painting 2

Some parts are not yet finished, mainly the foreground.


Still Life- flattening space

Painting 2.

Small meat painting with embroidery

I made a second one with a running stitch, but sold it.

Portrait of a man

Large-scale Mask

From sculpture 3. About three feet long, base made from chicken wire and covered with plaster and paper pulp, then painted (acrylic). Displayed in a wooden box.

Bull from Europa project


Fallen man in a bull suit. This was for sculpture 2. Since then, Europa's head an feet have fallen off. Had they not, she would be sitting on his back.

Meat

Playing around with meat again. Some studies I did, trying to decide what to do for a bigger piece.

Adrian with a background (that I don't really like)

Somehow I feel like it's getting worse, but I'm sure it could be fixed.

Revised Portrait

Fixed the nose, fixed the eyes, not sure what to do about that mouth, and I gave it blue hair. Still have the background to worry about. I'm thinking a stripclub, maybe she'll be leaning on the pole.

Catching Fireflies

So instead of finishing what I've already started, I just began another painting. This one's my sister Adrian with her jar of fireflies. I'm not sure what I'm going to do about the background yet but I'm thinking about an open field, some hills, possibly a dragon... No, no dragon.

Reading.

The closest I'll ever come to being in bed with William Faulkner.

self portrait

Playing around with oil on cardboard. the beginning of a self-portrait.. one night's worth of work along with another but it didn't photograph well, too wet.
