More great and peculiar work from Chicago based sculptor Jessica Joslin (featured). Joslin assembles her hybrid creatures from objects found in obscure junk shops, flea markets, attics, taxidermy supply houses, specialty hardware distributors…or even just walking through the woods. “Miniature machine bolts, springs and couplings comprise anatomical structures. Many of the beasts have hidden movements: a spring loaded beak, snapping jaws, jointed legs and adjustable tails. Some creatures are free-standing but have mechanisms to allow for movement or multiple positions.”
Joslin is currently exhibiting in Roq La Rue‘s group show “Lush Life” which runs through January 6, 2012 in Seattle, Washington.
