They are 18.5 inches tall sculptures that are mounted to a wood base. Hand sculpted using a mix of polymer clays that, when cured, have a very lifelike, pristine quality. Their clothing is white velveteen and 100% cotton to represent their innocence. They are topped with real human hair.

To compliment the sculptures, I collaborated with jewelry designer, Annika Rundberg, in creating emblems of the dangers of wearing your heart on your sleeve.  I chose concept over function using genuine fish hooks. They are SHARP! The most dangerous parts are bound though they have tiny barbs that have potential to getting caught in ones hair – or an embrace. Wear them as a symbol but not recommended for daily wear.

This sculptures will be on display through the month of October for the annual Art of Horror exhibition and the jewelry is available through my etsy shop. Please contact me if you would like to red dot any of these items: info at strangedolls dot net

The sculptures are $498 each and the earrings are $38 (large) and $28 (small)

I met the ladies of Nerdy Curiosities while vending at Vermont Comic Con and they were kind enough to take the time to do a little interview:

 

Sorry for all ‘ums’ and ‘hms’, my brain was completely frazzled after 2 crazy months of events and vending, the huge success of the Art of Horror opening night (and all the prep that went into it) and the annoyance of the Mixed Emotions show cancellation and the new found home for it at One Arts.

After the interview I promptly got on a plane and took off to the Dominican Republic for a MUCH NEEDED week long vacation amongst Dr. Seuss like palm trees, beautiful flowers, funny birds, and glory of the Caribbean. I did nothing for a week but drink cocktails, listen to music, read voraciously, and doze on the beach, under the stars.

Then I came back home to this:

Guess it is time to get back in the studio and get to work. Who wants to be outside?

Co-Curator, Sarah Vogelsang-Card and I, spent an exhaustive day hanging the 2014 Art of Horror exhibit. We are so excited about the opening on Friday, we can’t wait for everyone to see the amazing dark artistry that courses through the veins of Vermont artists.

This photo is where my sculpture USED to hang in my studio. It is now finished and on the gallery wall. When you meet her, notice her smell. Her scent is overturned earth and dead flowers.

Hope to see you all Friday from 5 – 11pm for an incredible explosion of dark art, performance, fire, metal… and tacos…. called The Art of Horror!

It all started with an old piece that got returned from a gallery. I decided it needed to be re-worked. And somehow it turned into this giant project.

Anyway, works in progress so far. I hope to have some of these girls completed for my Art of Horror group show in October.
