About two weeks ago, on the eve of San Francisco’s Open Studios in the Soma area, inspiration struck. I was out shopping for some art supplies in the Mission and came across what would become the materials for the work you see below. Somehow I connected the dots to use sticker books and crucifixes together and was very happy with the results. They got a good reaction during my open studio at SomArts, I priced them at $25.00 each and sold a Spider-Man crucifix on the second day to a school teacher. My first batch consisted of only 3, I’ve since sold or given away others and have now remade them.
Since my open studios presentation I’ve made more crucifixes and am now contemplating what direction to go with them. My current body of work is below.
There are more in the works, a Disney Princess crucifix and a Batman crucifix are both on their way. To purchase one of these sacrilicious artworks please email me. They are ready to hang and each of them has a design on the back as well.
