The Tash Stash

TashStashPromoWideLorez

Horace Mooch was teased through school for his moustache which had unfortunately been installed upside down.  Unable to afford a replacement he taught himself basic metalworking skills and fashioned himself a new one.
The replacement never reached his face. So exquisite was it that the Dean of his collage purchased it for himself and started a trend for handmade Tashes. So taken was he with his new found talent and popularity that he set up in business and soon became the go-to place for high end facial adornments. The little workshop was passed from father to son and is now in the fourth generation. Each Horace in turn waring their own Tash upside down in memorium of the founder.

ABS, PVC, Epoxy, MDF, Rubber, Lead, Glass, Polyurethane resin, Leather, Paper, Found Objects. Mounted on a wooden shelf.
16″ x 16″ approx.

Erasmus Kipple

KipplePromoLorez

Where there’s muck there’s Brass.. Or so the saying goes. It proved true for Erasmus. Mistaken for dead and ejected to a scrap heap, he slowly recovered and began to rebuild his broken body from that lay around him. Exchanging his steam drive for a clockwork one allowed him to go without fuel and cut another tie to his dependence on society. He dropped out for a while, scavenging the heaps, organising and cataloguing. Then he returned with a new and successful venture. Forging an innovative line in reclaimation yards which became a new trend among the middle classes.

Oddfellows

OddfellowsFL.jpg

 

The crowning glory of the current “Oddfellows” show at Stranger Factory is the collaborative sculpture between myself and the astonishingly talented Chet Zar. A tower of robot and monster goodness. Who controls who in this mash up of metal, bone and flesh. The piece took many months to complete with parts going back and forth across continents. The final result is a probably never to be repeated, surreal bio-mechanical wonder. The whole thing stands some 21″ tall in case you were wondering just how big it was.

It was a real pleasure and privilege to be able to work with Chet on this project. The results are even better than I could have hoped for.

Tiberius Shutterbug

ShutterburgLorez

The new science of Photography heralds a fresh artistic era.
One in which the everyman can create images as beautiful as any trained painter.
Why hire a professional when with the simple application of basic equipment anyone can take their own pictures.
A popular idea not shared by Tiberius.
Anyone may be able to click off a few snap shots. But it takes great skill to make truly great images.
Just dont get him started on the advantages of photographs over paintings.
