Grandmama by ForestRogers Grandmama by ForestRogers
A study sculpted in polymer clay, about 10" high from finger to knuckle. I had an ominous maternal Grandmother, who kept a red-handled fireman's ax by her bed, as well as an ice-pick, brick and hammer. My artist mother dreamt of her in the form of a grappling white octopus, which was perfect after the way of dreams. Old age and dissolution, combined with Grandma's innate power, unsettled. As a ghost, I see her swim through air as through abyssal waters. I aim to explore this critter further!

Freud would have a heyday with this. Disturbing, surreal, and damn-well photographed. The lighting reminds me of pictures of deep sea life, and is perfect for this intricate and stunning model. This is the kind of thing that I would LOVE to see move, something like this in motion would be deeply disturbing. 

Ann lies.

The Other One.
