Janice Wright Cheney’s Animal Sculptures

Animal Sculptures - Close Up of Walking Bear's Head

This sculpture was made by Canadian artist, Janice Wright Cheney. It is titled WIDOW. She made two of these bears. One of them is in the largest of contemporary Canadian art show ever produced outside of Canada: MASS MoCA’s Oh, Canada. The bears were created using taxidermy forms. They are covered with velvet and roses which were hand-felted and dyed. WIDOW is one of several animal sculptures Wright Cheney has created during her career.

Janice Wright Cheney’s work often incorporates textiles and biology. The media is feminine but the subject matter is not. She chooses animals most people do not like. Animals like coyotes, rats, snakes, insects, and squid. Wright Cheney questions common perceptions about these creatures. She is interested in how people respond to animals in “our” environment. Textiles help her challenge these responses.

Red Riding Hood and the VW Camper Van [VIDEO]

It’s hard to explain the unique nature of this video (shown right after the screenshots). Basically, it’s a very analytical interpretation of the classic Red Riding Hood fairy tale. The story is expertly dissected into informational blocks, and it’s fascinating and entertaining to watch. I particularly found the scene of the fairy tale wolf being shot through the Read More Here.
