These are some projects for an upcoming show at GALLERY 1988 in San Francisco. Cuter Than Strange will be a 3 man show with Dice Tsutsumi, Soosa Kim and myself which opens Friday, May 21st @7PM.
Some of these projects were started 2-3 years ago and taken about halfway. They seem appropriate for the theme of the show, so I'm going to finish them along with some other pieces.
This was sculpted in clay, glazed and fired in a kiln. But I didn't like how it turned out so it sat around for a while until I had the idea to use it for the above vignette. Since it is only a bust I thought I'd mount it on a small mirror so it looks like the zombie is rising from the water behind the rabbit (sculpted last week). I repainted the zombie with acrylics.
This was sculpted, molded and cast in plaster 3 years ago. I painted it last night and will mount it on a pedestal. Maybe I will put some little wings on him. These small sculptures are fun to do. It reminds me of making dioramas as a kid.
THE MONSTER SQUAD
A couple of years ago I saw The Monster Squad (1987) for the first time. It's a very entertaining movie. The lead monsters in the film are Dracula and Frankenstein. The others have supporting roles but they make a good looking group. Frankenstein and The Wolfman have yet to be finished.
