Preview – Amanda Visell’s solo: Sculptures


Yesterday we had the pleasure of dropping by Amanda Visell and Michelle Valigura's studio.  Amanda's breathing a little easier now that she  just wrapped up work for her Tic Toc Apocalypse solo opening this Saturday  (6.21) @ M Modern in Palm Springs.  Having seen the pieces first hand,  mass destruction has reached a new pinnacle of charm, humor and visual appeal. 

In case  you’re curious Amanda’s trail of deadly monsters is marked by a large number of paintings including some of her largest pieces yet on canvas.  She also has four finished ink drawings (not sketches).  And of course, original wood sculptures – five to be exact. 

Since a studio visit without a post is like cereal without milk, we’re happy to bring you a preview of two of her wood sculptures – first there’s the towering two-headed ice-giant (above) from her Ice Army painting. The fearsome two-some has a compelling and unusual way of 'recruiting' their ice army.  This is likely her most complex and largest sculpture so far.  And our favorite of her wood pieces – the Jackalope, which apparently loves tormenting robots.  See the agony after the jump. Enjoy.
