It's acrylic on ceramic and wood, (the wood is the stick).
This piece is the latest in a series that aims to blur the distinctions between painting and sculpture, as well as pop art and realism.
Last Thursday, (August 30, 2012), Australian artist Bill Henson gave a lecture at my university.
The lecture was pretty incredible and genuinely inspiring. Whether you agree with what Bill does or not, he's a really smart guy and a really great speaker. I've heard Bill speak before, as I talked about here, but this was by far the best talk I've seen him give.
After the lecture I showed Bill my sculpture and asked if he'd let me have my photograph taken.
And so here it is, Me holding Two Bills.
(I wore my year 11 high school top, as year eleven was the last year I was underage and I thought it might subconsciously improve my chances at getting this photograph).I asked Bill Henson if he liked Bubble'O Bills. He said he did but only on special occasions.
I guess it's all about moderation if you want to maintain a clean Bill of health.
I tried explaining that to these ducks but they wouldn't listen.
They told me they were sorry to burst my Bubble but they didn't want a clean Bill, and that if they could they'd happily wrap their Bills around a Bill every hour of the day.
I think I might agree with the ducks.
I don't know if I could eat 24 Bubble'O Bills in one day, but I'd sure love to take a quack at it.
