I sculpted this piece for a very special memorial art show run by Martina & Frank Russo of MF Gallery in Brooklyn, New York. They were really close friends with him and had put together and amazing show of work in memory of Dave Brockie. Dave Brockie was one of the founding members of the shock rock band GWAR. He passed away this March. The band put together an Art Foundation for those in need of assistance to pursue their artistic dreams. They have a video about it here. Part of the proceeds from this art show will go to that fund. This was one of the coolest art shows I have been a part of, I am so honored to have had a piece in it. There is a lot of coverage of this event, to see pictures and art visit this. My Oderus piece was made from Super Sculpey clay, wood, resin, and oils.
Creature A Day. I found myself stifled by the number of things going on in my life, with the matter of not having the time to put my thoughts into my work. Yes, Jonathan is still awaiting his next move, in which he will be getting a few props to play with. Oh what a demon he is becoming. – So, instead of feeling a bit of a lose from it. I’ve decided to follow some advice, and make something regardless. SO here we are with Creature A Day* Although, I usually ponder what is coming up next and where to take it. These little guys bring themselves out. I just don’t know where they are coming from, but they form between my fingers. And I must say they are quite cute! What! Cute, yes cute. I make cute. Yes, yes yes..
Presently I am sculpting a new creature inspired by the energy and likeness of Jonathan Davis of KORN. On my birthday last year in Hollywood California at Club 1666, I had the opportunity to experience JDevil’s show. Perhaps, I was entranced by his pure Black Scalera’s and was so taken by his presence, that I vowed to make a doll of him. Alas, a year later I have begun the journey to make this happen. For this particular creation, I am learning new techniques. .. Trying out a very eyesight enduring procedure of threading real hair into the scalp of clay. . it is actually quite meditative. Feeling the life bubble out of the hair.. I can not wait to see what will become of it.
