Frog-1

Blue Footed Frog

The blue footed frog (Dendrobates azureus) breeds seasonally, usually during February or March when it is rainy. To find mates the males sit on a rock and produce quiet calls, which the females follow to track down the males. The females then physically fight over a male. The male takes the female to a quiet […]

Walrus

Just finished this piece, Kennicottii, reclaimed material, 12″ x 7″ x 7″. The wire whiskers just about killed me!

I just got this picture of the installation I created at SOFA Chicago. 6 wasps against a drawing of a nest.

Yellow Jackets & Wasps

Just finished-three more wasps & yellow jackets. Yes…wasps. My earlier posting referred to them as bees-incorrect. Bees can be cute, rolly-polly, fuzzy flying insects. My wasps are not cute or fuzzy, they are long, thin and have an attitude-just like the real thing.

Coral Snake

I just finished what I am calling, Collaris: Pipe Clamp Coral Snake. He is a mixture of different colored bike tires, pipe clamps and painted cloth. He also has a curious assortment of buttons, tools, and screws, washers and odds/ends that he has accumulated during his travels.

Frog Commission

Several months ago my Santa Fe gallery told me that some collectors had come in the gallery, really checked out my work, but they only collect frogs. They asked me to make any type of frog that I wanted to. It took me a little bit of time to come up with the movements, articulations […]

Rattlesnake

My daughter was recently in the high desert of Northern New Mexico and spotted a small rattlesnake. Her picture of the creature made it look precious and beautiful like a small Turkish rug. I have not made many snakes, finding them complicated and beyond my imagination but after seeing this one, I made “Gallopavo Unwinding.” […]

ROSEUS FINALLY WINS AN AWARD

Showing in Chicago

These two new pieces are also heading for Chicago and the SOFA Art Fair at Navy Pier. The large, over sized rabbit is holding an award that he won. The only problem is the award, which is mysterious to say the least. (It looks like some Foreign Legionnaire holding a dislocated arm.) “ROSEUS FINALLY WINS […]

The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn

Literary Inspirations

I’ve been thinking about the creative process and where it comes from. For me, one important place where I find inspiration for new pieces is from the books I read.(Of course I have never lacked a vivid imagination.) In fact, my entire art ‘career’ got started from reading The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn by Mark […]

A Different Perspective

My good friend Jodi Balsamo took some interesting photographs of work from my show at the Jane Sauer Gallery. I really like the way Jodi saw the work through very different eyes!

Working with Lead

Off and on I have used lead as an exterior covering. Amazingly enough, it is very delicate and takes more patience than I am used to, having mainly worked with rusted tin. But it has several interesting qualities such as being extremely malleable, easy to cut, and produces finishes that range from metallic to ceramic. […]

Jane Sauer Essay

Animology August 2012 Geoffrey Gorman continues on his pilgrimage of bringing life to materials that might otherwise turn up in a garage sale at best or in the town dump at worse. Instead of the local art store, he finds his art supplies at the Habitat for Humanity Restore and as gifts left on the […]
