Atop

Parts Series #36: “Atop”, 2/1/05, 25” x 21” x 21”, mixed media with sound (27 red & yellow balls with figures on top)

“Atop” consists of nine critters atop twenty-seven red and yellow painted styrofoam balls. Some are ‘intact’, like the orange and white striped tiger puss and the three squished-together canaries. Others are ‘composite’ like the human nude baby with the dark and light blue cat head. Another baby has red stars down its back, and another faces us, wearing only shoes and socks and still another is wearing only red and blue trousers. Another orange and white striped cat faces front on both sides, joined forever at their/its center. They all sit on top of the twenty-seven spheres, kings and queens of their world!
