This weekend! If you are in NY or the vicinity, head up to Beacon, NY. Apparently they have at *least* five things to do; and one of them is this soft sculpture/plush gallery show, Stitched, which is going to be AWESOME. Hosted at the gallery of the amazing magazine Clutter, and curated by the equally amazing Lana Crooks (whose piece I want to steal). Linkage: FB invite if you’re going / Sign up for the preview list for first dibs on works / direct link to the show after it opens
This is my piece! His name is Raziel and he is the first “Celestial Tier” Sprite. So I showered him with fanciness, including three pairs of magnetic wings, a crown with a fake opal I made, and a light-up galaxy in his stomach. 14” tall with a 22” wingspan, and more different materials and beads/sequins/rhinestones than you can shake a stick at; including a bunch of stuff that doesn’t photograph, like custom iridescent glitter eyes with stars in them and a handmade “opal”.
Honestly I’ve never had so many things inexplicably go wrong! He must have been making sure I gave him the attention he deserved. But he’s on his way, and I’m getting used to spending my days and long (LONG) nights trying to put right what isn’t yet done. My only guide on this journey is
Al Net-hulu-zon… uh *cough* *exit stage right*
