I’m intermittently working on another sculpture/assemblage made from natural food objects.
In a similar fashion to my Eldritch Abominations I’m constructing a humanoid body that will follow some basics of human anatomy intertwined with the horrific elements of the character. So far I have put together a spine along with shoulder blades and a pelvis. In the chest cavity I’ve started to put together the heart, trachea and part of the bronchi.Throughout the piece I’ve been attaching bundles of nerve fibers as I go so that it achieves a natural fit as things come together. The piece is around 6.5” long without the head.
The final piece will accompany the book I am currently writing and illustrating and will be based on an entity that exists in the first story of the book. I hope that it will be finished by next month as I’d like to preview it at an exhibition that I’m going to be a part of. I also need to figure out a method of suspending the piece in mid-air, within a clear display case.
