Pillowbrain (2014). Paper mache, plaster, cotton, stuffing. 15” x 14” x 8”.
This work is part of Melancholia, the new series I am working on. Pillowbrain depicts a feeling I associate with depression- the feeling that my brain is full of fluff, and is about as conductive to coherent thought. Despite lacking an actual face, I think the work is quite expressive, as you can adjust the pillow quite easily to convey different emotions through body language.
