Random Encounters No 2

One of a short series of sculptures inspired by the idea of classic Dungeons and Dragons monsters surviving in contemporary urban environments. Random Encounters #2 shows a Rust Monster glimpsed by flashlight as it feeds on an old bike frame and beer cans in an abandoned subway tunnel.

Rust Monsters are typically seen as more of a nuisance than a danger, but all animals will defend themselves when cornered. I gave it extra eyes to accentuate its invertebrate classification, and reasoned that the weird propeller structure on the tail might be used as a threat display when the creature is disturbed.

Made for my 'One Thing After Another' solo show at Clutter Gallery NY. Epoxy clay on a wooden display base. Stands 18cm tall and 22cm wide.
