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.

Self Portrait

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

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.
