Sculpture: Male of the Species (aka Mr. Chickenpants)

Detail 1
Detail 2

inches: 36 wide x 12 deep x 28 tall
recycled silk and satin neckties, feathers, birch laminate (beak), taxidermy glass eyes, poplar (legs), paper, reeds, acrylic dye.

This piece explores the cliche of the "cocky" male who struts his stuff out of vanity, machismo or attempts to attract a mate. The use of "power" neckties as feathers is parellel to men's use of the necktie to attract or make a social statement of some kind.


( includes clear plexiglass showcase)

Statement:

This series reflects my love of birds, watching them in nature, wondering what motivates them and how they react to us. I hope to bring more focus on birds, their environment and our impact on each other. The work presented here is both literal and interpretive, the intent is to capture the color, shape and movement of birds as well as their motivations and reactions. This body of work contains some of my first sculpture works.

I'd like to thank all who gave their time, energy and support for this show. It was a year in the making and I would not have been able to have such a successful outcome were it not for the help of God, my close friends, my extended family and other key people who helped support my efforts throughout the year. Thank you so much!
