Well, thanx to Fishbaitkate for unsticking me out of this lethargic goo. She sends in this link of John Casey. When all layers of the skin are pulled back to expose the hidden creatures underneath...there it is captured in Bunnywax for all to see. John's sculptures remind me of Scott Radke's puppets on the more manical side and his drawings have a feel of Renee French's work. His characters seem to emerge out of the natural material (eg. basswood) and then sealed into unnatural existence by the acrylic and paint on it. So, put the latex gloves on and sink your fingers into the knotted holes and pull out a clump of Bunnywax. Mmmmmm.
