Clowns and Marionettes

  • _06040409
    Inspiration for my clowns reaches as far back as the 16th style of street performance known as Commedia dell'Arte (my Punch is a direct descendent of Pulcinella) as well as drawing from more modern sources like the wondrously imagined Cirque du Soleil. Here and there I take historical reference in the construction of certain aspects of the costuming process, but I love the freedom that clowns offer to pursue the most whimsical, ludic, and even absurd directions in their attire. A couple of my marionettes have found their way into the pop culture: Mlle. Senyah was created for a how-to project on HGTV's "That's Clever!", and I was commissioned by Grammy award winning singer/songwriter Darrell Scott to creat a portrait marionette for the cover of his cd "The Theatre of the Unheard". That cd became a Top 100 Critics Choice for Rolling Stone Magazine.
