As an adult, my relationship to Bigfoot is archetypal. Big Foot represents my hermit archetype. As an artist, we need time away from distractions, society, events, the normal activities of most people, in order to do our work. Bigfoot represents the recluse, living a solitary existence, venturing out when he runs out of booze and smokes. He is elusive by choice, answering to no one. "Big Foot's, Big Mouth" explores the themes of isolation, addiction and urban decay with a dose of humor and nostalgia.
The assemblage frame for "Big Foot's Big Mouth" is made of pieces that Big Foot, the character in my creation, found in the woods and on the fringes of society. He is fascinated with the objects that humans give so much value too. He is equally fascinated with the objects we discard without a look back. I've created a frame by choosing every piece to reflect the mind set of the subject of the piece. This frame embodies its subject, Big Foot, in reality. I set the objects, one by one, to expand the story of his journey. What was hidden is now revealed.
