Sculptures de papier
OCTOBER 12, 2009
My Crystal Cities have gone 3-d and now squatters have moved in. The guess the secret's getting out.
It's a ragtag crowd for sure: saints, sinners, soldiers home from war.
I'll be exhibiting three or four of these sculptures and paintings in Paris this December when I attend the Salon du Livre de la presse jeunesse in Montreuil. The children's book fair has high level representatives from all the French publishers of picture books, juvenile books and bandes dessinées. It's huge. Luckily, the "guest list" is online and I've been doing nose-to-the-grindstone research for the least few months and have begun contacting directeures artistiques. I can't wait to go!
2010 poster/calendar advertising the exhibit just came back from the printer and awaits shipment to France. The show will be at The American Library in Paris which is near the Eiffel Tower in the 7th arrondisement (Merci le fact-checking dept!). All the sculptures will fit inside this nifty carry-on size crate that I built. Not a centimeter to spare! Don't forget the Christmas lights!
Eccentrics are very much at home in this place!
A glittering metropolis awaits…
Need some cabbages? Oh my, it's gotten late!
Thief! Opportunist! An inch-high knave of hearts!
You try painting when a stag and his harem wander onto your palette!
