I will be showing this image for the first time at The Body Show Figurative and Erotic Art for the 21st Century. February 4th-26. Opening reception Friday Feb. 4th 5-8 pm, and another reception for the ABQ Art Walk Feb 18th 5-8 pm all
at the 105 Art Gallery in Albuquerque
The image was inspired by a graphic novel from one of my favorite artists Charles Burns. Wherein the villains had their "Elderly Heads" transplanted onto baby bodies as a futuristic way to preserve youth. Ya creepy. But who knows what extremes people will go to in this age of botox and "shrink wrap" face lifts. Combine that with human cloning for body parts and well, lets just say my children are going to grow up in a strange world.
