Sculpture & Installation: 2016-2018 > My Spirit Animal is a Mutant, 2017

A clumsy creature referencing many childhood memories including the scene where Bambi stands for the first time on unsteady, spindly legs, the bizarre and perverse countenance of the local mall’s visiting Easter Bunny photo portrait character and the cartoonish anger of a Science Fair volcano. The bunny costume’s head is mangled and sightless; arranged as an albino cherry atop a fur-covered scalloped-lattice which covers the centaur-fawn’s crouched body. The reflection in the mirror, over which the creature perches, reveals an intimate and surprising view of a ghostly head crowning. (materials listed below)
