Inner Crabby mixed media on paper board sculpture 55 x 20 x 20″ $2500
It was late 2019. Just what was I crabby about?
– My mother in a nursing home nearby? (likely)
– Trump? (probably)
– A bunch of trees blown down by some odd weather phenomenon called a microburst? (yes)
– The invasive vine in my backyard?
– Brothers not communicating ?
– Crashed my bike?
– Fridge busted?
– Redheaded woodpecker pecking on our house?
I have been drawing these blob shapes for years. I took another sculpture apart because it was horrible and used the triangles to make this one. The patterns are printed on my inkjet printer, on top of crossword puzzles.
I like the way the eyes came out.
Some of my influences are Sonya Clark, Ray Johnson, Valérie Blass, Joyce Scott, Kiki Smith, Nancy Currier. I am a graphic designer, quiltmaker, painter. Also a walker, bike rider, chocolate eater, reader.
