Series 80 (RushBeck HanniHate)*
Oil, latex, (dead) gnats, wingnuts, lights, radio parts, teeth*, glowpaint, and ink on panels (aka mixed media).
Hung at angles:
Night view with glow-effects (glowing "radio" wave lines, lit golf ball eyes, lit radio "on air" signs) activated.
Real world view (from the "Between The Acts" show) in mashup display with Series 235.
Initial sketch, clean sketch, finished and lit character.
With an “ON AIR” sign glowing in his ample belly and with a lit AM tuner dial in his big open mouth, the empty-headed RushBeck HanniHate is shouting his latest rant into the airwaves. His golf ball eyes bulge. He treads on flags of Canada, Mexico, France and the UN. Glow paint can illuminate "radio waves" and the eyes at night. For maximum creepiness-effect, the teeth are real human remains (gathered legally). This series evokes the Rush Limbaugh / Glenn Beck / Sean Hannity sorts of commentators without specifying which one is the subject ---maybe they all are since they’re so much alike. Left wingers tend to feel this is how such personalities actually are; right wingers feel this is how they're portrayed. Meaning is left to the viewer.
Teeth are real —acquired in compliance with applicable state laws regarding human remains.
