Space Invasion (Realistic Acrylic Patina)
Rattlesnakes are truly fascinating creatures. Most recently evolved of the world’s snakes, they come only from the western hemisphere (mainly North America). While designing this piece, I remembered a past mentor telling me, “Anything you can draw, a snake can do.” Direct observation continues to prove this true.
Original medium was tupelo, then produced as a commissioned bronze for The Wildlife Experience Museum, Parker (Denver), Colorado (now UC Denver South). Despite their extensive bronze collection, I was, at the time, the only artist ever commissioned to do sculpture specifically for them. Placed on their outdoor Sculpture Walk, I was honored to have been chosen to create this sculpture.
2nd casting of edition was purchased by Na 'Āina Kai Sculpture/Botanical Gardens, Kauai, Hawaii, as part of their Native American Navajo Village, and placed on red-rock escarpment. (This was their first purchase of my work. Commissioned sculptures containing 12 individuals of 7 different species later followed!)
"Space Invasion" juried into two prestigious exclusive U.S./Canadian wildlife art shows: 2009 Society of Animal Artists "Small Works Show", held at The Wildlife Experience Museum in Parker (Denver), Colorado, and 2010 Artists For Conservation Foundation's annual show, "The Art of Conservation, Vancouver, British Columbia.
