Horrible Adorables: New works by Jordan Elise Perme
October 10th - November 18th, 2012
Free & Open to the Public
Art Star is pleased to announce a solo exhibition with Jordan Elise Perme of Horrible Adorables. The exhibition will be on display from October 10th - November 18th, 2012.
An opening reception with the artist will be held in conjunction with Design Philadelphia's Northern Liberties Kick Off event on October 10th from 5-9pm. Live music & light refreshments will be provided.
Ohio based artist Jordan Elise Perme creates faux-taxidermy sculptures under the moniker Horrible Adorables. Jordan sculpts fantastical creatures from Styrofoam, adds eerily realistic glass eyes & then completely covers the form with cut felt scales. The finished piece is then mounted on a painted wood plaque, much like taxidermy. The artist states, "I visualize existing animals and wonder what they would look like if they had strange
features such as horns, a long snout or gangly teeth. These new additions further distance the creatures from being a specific, recognizable animal and also give them an other worldly appearance." Each mounted beast is given its own sometimes pseudo-scientific name, such as "Perissadactylcorn", "Grufflebadger", the humorous "Glitter Pony of Gemstone Cavern" or just simply "Gerald". Each piece is 100% handmade & one-of-a-kind.
