The semester is winding down…

63 days

It’s hard to believe my first semester of grad school is almost over! I feel like it just started. Seriously, where did the time go? Well as the saying goes, “time flies when you’re having fun.”

The other first-year grads and I put on a show called “63 Days” at the gallery where I work as a graduate assistant. I’ll post picutures from that show in a reflection post. For now, I’ll leave you with photos of pieces I put in the show.

12 Pounds

2″x1″x2″ each

ceramic, spray paint

handmade replicas of a store-bought, 39-cent mass-produced figurine from a thrift store. Eventually, these will be ‘donated’ to the same store the orginal figure came from. The new prices of each figure will be documented in a series of photogaphs of the store display. The title is derived from a carving found on the bottom of the original figure. There was no copyright or company symbol found anywhere on it.

12″ x 7″ x 8″ each

stuffed animal pelts, foam, pins, polyfill

Several stuffed animals were cut apart at the seams, creating ‘pelts,’ which were patched together in a quilt-like manner  and made into limbless, noseless, mouthless beings.

These pieces were great experiments and explorations, however my new work is something completely different. I’m excited to find out where it’s all going to lead.
