Two Torsos Will Go to the Windy City

I just got word this morning that two of my armature assemblage pieces got accepted into the group show "Materiality" at ARC Gallery in Chicago! Flamenco Filters and A Modern Dress for a Modern Woman: Just Wipe Clean, will be shipped off for the show that takes place between 3/3/2010 to 3/27/2010, and an opening reception on March 5, 2010. I won't be able to make it to the show but if you are in the area, check it out, it looks like there is a lot of good work that got accepted!

The Girls are Getting Legs! (along with arms & a head eventually)

I've been tossing the idea of taking the torsos to a full body format for the last year or so. Most of the new projects I want to work on are taking on a more installation type feel and having the torsos pinned to the wall or suspended from the ceiling just wasn't going to work. So, here's the start of a full body in process- Legs!

What I have discovered is that the labor on a full body is going to far, far, far surpass a single torso.  Each one of these legs took between 7-8 hours.  If each body part runs the same we're looking at about 48 hours just for the frame. Considering that the dresses take anywhere from 12-20+ hours, I'm looking at a lot of work ahead.
