Here they are. The sculptures that represent my blood, sweat, and toil of the last couple months. At first glance they look like something you might expect to see at a children's book store but like my balloon sculpture, they transcend their innocent child's toy appearances quickly. I've always considered my balloon sculpture to be surrealism and these new works in wood fall right in line. With their phallic and feminine attributes they communicate in much the same way my balloon works do.
I'm happy with how they turned out and looking forward to seeing them installed in the gallery. I leave at six in the morning for Vermont and I hope to have some install shots on here in a few days.
I'd like to talk more about this work but need to get some rest. More soon.
