This gnarled, scraggly, coiled reptile (23″ high) is the newest addition to Sculpturezoo.com. Inspired by my favorite croissant-stealing friends in the French West Indies (St-Barth√©lemy),¬†L’iguane was sculpted with¬†water-based resin, skinned with an antiqued-bronze patina, and perched atop bark-encrusted hickory with a brass turning pin. ¬†Sculpturezoo.com is my NEW¬†crowdfunding site for The Acrobat Project; a¬†monumental outdoor bronze sculpture created for temporary exhibit at Finn Park in Tribeca/NYC~through NYC Parks’ Art in the Parks Program/summer 2017.
The Art + The Events + The What Was The Question?
This Summer…one of my outdoor bronze sculptures unceremoniously popped up‚ÄĒwithout attribution or permission‚ÄĒin the new smartphone gaming phenomonen, Pok√©mon Go. Flattering isn‚Äôt quite the right word to describe this experience, especially since players have been tramping uninvited¬†through my collector‚Äôs property to ‚Äúcapture‚ÄĚ cartoon monsters.¬†An errant baseball knocked through a window would be preferable to the unwelcome harassment this game has inflicted. The name of my sculpture is Dragon; if only I could animate it to fight back!!
