Mountain tire wrapped bodies, smoking pipes for tail feathers, house numbers from suburban neighborhoods, and yellow electrical wire for body feathers are just a few of the discarded items that Santa Fe sculptor Geoffrey Gorman uses in his otherworldly creatures. Not only are the creatures steeped in symbolism, they are very Tim Burton and eco-friendly. Amazing work! Watch this Youtube video about his Having Wings show from February. His pot comment will have you laughing out LOUD. Love his sense of humor and his wonderful background story on each piece. Wish I lived in Santa Fe so that I could see his Second Nature show that opens on June 17 at the Jane Sauer Gallery.
Encaustic wax, paint, rust and assemblages are my favorite media. I love to travel and create workshops for other artists all over the world.
