Art Description

Sculpture: Mixed Media on Stainless Steel, Soft (Yarn, Cotton, Fabric) and Other.

Description: A part of me that feels powerful and impenetrable, and alone takes the form of a small, armored plush toy teddy bear (edition 4, +2 APs). I deconsructed the object, fortified every bit of soft fur with a growth of sharp, stainless steel pins from the inside, pointing out. I disemboweled the squishy innards and densely repacked it with rough stainless steel wool. I crudely sewed my new, defensive self back together with thick grey thread, and studded the seams. A representation of me stiffly sits alone, permanently frozen, with outstretched arms. I even assembled my own "sweatshop" for the endless hours of pinning, during the summer months.Medium: Stainless steel, polyester, acrylic fabric glue, blood
