Untitled

2015

plasticine, polyurethane, plaster, epoxy

28 x 37 x 7 inches

Edition 1 of 2 + 1 AP

This untitled wall relief is part of a new series of work, based off of drawings Patrick Jackson made over the past 15 years. He looks through old sketchbooks for repeating images, and takes from them to develop his own personal iconography. The imagery varies, but often contains body parts: mouth, ear, hands, fingers, neck, teeth, tongue, etc.  Each relief is sculpted using a soft clay called WED, which stands for Walt E. Disney (Disney imaginers came up with the recipe for this particularly malleable clay).  Molds are taken of the original works, and the final pieces are cast in a hard pink plasticine, a type used to create design prototypes.
