The Fish Garden

Bloody Circus

Toyz Out of the Box

Mixed Media Assemblage, 2018


14.5”H x 8”W x 5”D

In the Fish Garden in the Bloody Circus, sprites ride carousel fish in a garden of black roses.

This art piece is inspired by Hendrick’s Gin Ads and my childhood memories of drawings by Ida Rentoul Outhwaite.

The miniature vintage toy creatures in the Toyz Out of the Box series are lovingly wrapped in antique lace & textiles and outfitted with bones or teeth.

Mounted with tiny dolls, they offer their riders an opportunity to escape the mundane.
