The series is starting the final half of it's final season this Sunday. I noticed early in the week that the first half was now available on Netflix, and you know what I did. Watched. All. Eight. Episodes. But I got a lot of work done while watching. Nearly very major body of work I've made in the last twenty years has a corresponding television series. My M.F.A exhibition was made to The X-Files and Homicide: Life on the Street. The beaded organs were made while watching Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Angel. The drawings in Careful Measures happened with the background of The O.C. And this work now, it has seen some really good television. I've been making it slowly for a couple of years, and in that time, I enjoyed all five seasons of Breaking Bad, House of Cards, Enlightened, Luther, Louie, the new season of Arrested Development....There is too much good television to be viewed, and thankfully, there is still a whole lot of work that needs to get made.
Here is some of my progress:
It looks like complete chaos. But...the bodies of two new sewing ladies nearly complete. The limbs for both require a little more painting and decisions as to what belongs where. Finally, the measuring tape will be painted on. And then I will break out the new drill to add the installation hardware. These two new pieces will be a part of my buysomedamnart.com exhibit. I'm still a little uncertain about the figure towards the bottom of this image and whether she will be included. I have got plans for a transparent dress, red rain boots and a large cupcake and lollipop, but making it all stand up...that is going to take a little more time. I will be sure to post installation images when I have them and let you know when the work is available.
