Vicky Healy

In honor of valentines day, and also because I have been annoyingly busy with 9-5 work, I wanted to post about Vicky Healy.

Her work is completely surreal and whimsical but also has a fun playfulness that I feel is so rare in art today.

It is sort of like an escape to another world.

Here are a few of my favorites, and be sure to take a look at her website:

Creatures 2 (just about) finished

So the first piece of Creatures is finally complete. Although this is part of the series, I wanted to create something for Jenny Nieh's birthday and I knew that she was really liking these new animals, and I also knew she loved deer, so this seemed perfect. I gave her the piece on Saturday.

Upon seeing my buffalo piece a few weeks ago (and a boar before that which I will probably be posting about on Thursday) Jenny had a great idea about displaying these pieces, to put them in between 2 pieces of glass (or plastic) so it would be completely clear, and there would be no paper or backing distracting from the actual animals. I had bought 2 clip frames, to use the glass panels but it didn't work out and I am still looking to solve this problem if anyone out there has any suggestions?
