I originally sculpted this bust in 1996 and exhibited it in a doll show curated by Rachel Amodeo at The Livestock Gallery on Eldridge St, NYC. It was also exhibited as part of the "In Your Face" group show curated by Jim Karpowicz and Claire Coleman at Here Gallery, SoHo NYC in 1997.
After that it lived for a long time in M. Henry Jones' Snake Monkey Studio. The original was a bit different and over the years took some wear & tear. When Snake Monkey Studio recently moved I got "Live Thoughts" back and did some refurbishing.
You can see the original in the next panel.
Sculpted of a mix of super sculpey and cernit this bust stands 5" tall. The eyes are lavender acrylic crystal. The hair is mohair. Signed and dated on back.
