Alive, Dead & Reanimated Taxidermy

UPDATED:  On display at the Oakwilde Ranch & Sculpture Park Spring Exhibition, March 31st – May 11th, 2012, near Valley Springs, CA.

Special thanks to Pat Sanchez for finding me a great serpentine gourd to work with and to IF for hardware critique/metals intel.  Cleaned, sanded, polished, dyed, waxed, cut apart and articulated the lil’ beast with handmade aluminum brackets.

A mixed-media assemblage, with a narrative exploring the Scientific specimen as cyborg/cyberpunk obscura. This is a theme I’ve been riffing on for several years… the alchemy of the New World Order: part toy – part tool – part relic. All the rage with the antique chic oddities cult.

Specimen #912.78 – 2012

mixed-media assemblage: gourd, wood, dye, graphite, wax, steel, aluminum, found objects

31”H x 18”W x 14”D – 6 lbs.

    I love that piece! It reminded me of Burrough’s movie, Naked Lunch. I don’t know why though…
