face of Confidence

"DA MOUTH" 7/50 © 1994.

Papier Mache, Acrylic Paint and Wood. 7 feet tall.


The final of the first seven pieces for the ArtWerks show in January of 1994, became a study of why I got involved in this project in teh first place. A sub personality of mine. This is the con artist the 'sales department' the trickster that makes promises to do things I have not done before in a moment of braggadocio before the facts are known. Without this aspect of my personality I might never venture forth into unknown territory. Because everything usually looks terribly easy before you begin it. What did I get myself into now?


Mouth's color is icky yellow and green, smarmy. Mouth only has one hand because it never has to actually do the work. Da Mouth makes the promises the artist must then fulfill.
