Just a really quick post to let everyone know about a new photo I’ve completed that will be on display at Distinction Gallery in Escondido, CA, from July 9th through August 6th. “Anicomically Correct” will bring together 20 artists for a comic themed show coinciding with the running of San Diego’s annual Comic Con convention. It’s going to be a really fun event, with the opening reception taking place on July 9th from 6 to 10 PM.
Wanna see my interpretation of the theme? Sure you do!
I basically crammed the head of a large-ish kewpie doll over the hard plastic shell of a Visible Man model (which unfortunately suffered a chip when I extricated it from the kewpie after I’d completed the photo). In the background is a Bodyscope medical teaching aid from 1935, which is normally on display in my living room, but occasionally makes trips out to my studio to serve background duty for new photos.
As an added bonus, I used the occasion of dismantling the three staging as an opportunity to create yet another video animation. This one combines techniques of stop motion and “stopped motion” to create an illusion of objects magically appearing before your bedazzled eyes (and don’t we all inspire to have our eyes bedazzled every now and then).
Here’s the video, featuring an absolutely awesome 1947 track from Sister Rosetta Tharpe.
