Above is Mitch O'Connell's poster for the upcoming Tura Satana-themed art show at the Tattoo Factory Gallery in Chicago. If you don't know who Tura is, where have you been hiding? My relief sculpt triptych, "Tura: Black and White and Red All Over" will be part of the show. A long shot of the triptych is seen below, followed by close-ups of the individual panels. Each panel is about a foot square. These are cast in resin, from a polymer clay sculpt mounted in a vintage frame. I won't be at the show, darn it all -- but Tura will. If you're anywhere near Chicago on the 30th, please stop by and see what promises to be an extraordinary collection of pieces from a remarkable line-up of artists.
I will get to meet Tura, however, as she will be a guest at the upcoming Kitbuilders' Monstrous Weekend Oct. 24-26 in St. Louis -- and I'll have a table there, showing my sculpts and comic art.
And yes, it does look just a little bit like Ms. Tree, doesn't it...?
