In this series of sculptures, photographs and animated short films, I have been combining various iconic images. Using religion, history and popular mass-produced objects, I hope to discover new potential for these humorous and sometimes disturbingly transformed characters. The objects are selected and mutated to achieve their new personality. Photograph portraits are taken to document their assumed identity. Some of the sculptures are named, while others are left untitled. Some are molded and cast into bronze to give them a sense of history and permanence. Other sculptures are left outside to weather and age. These characters are used in various short animated films and then destroyed or recast into new roles.
