Outsider Art Found Object Sculptures: Make Love Not War
BEER CAN RAT SCULPTURES
OUTSIDER ART - FOLK ART - ANIMAL SCULPTURES
this is the second in my beer can rat series.. sorry the blog posts are a little behind and a little out of order. I create the sculptures in my beer can rat series from sculpting the head and body with a two part epoxy clay. I'm really loving working with it. I form the body around vintage beer cans. I use objects that I've found and collected throughout the years in our hikes, travels and junking trips. This one was really fun and I gave beer can rat some dread locks out of some old vintage jewelry. I like to mix up the eyes on my beer can rat sculptures and will often use two different found objects for the eyes in this case it was a small gear and from the inside of an old typewriter and an old bobbin for the other eye (which I guess is sort of signature for my sculptures in this series).
this little rat's sign reads - Make Love Not War and I think it is totally fitting for the outrageous, nonsensical war going on with Russia's attacks on the innocent Ukrainian people currently.
