Rocket Fleet and Astronauts
The rocketships and astronauts are made of recycled materials and papier maché. They are painted with ink, acrylic and shellac.
This same technique is used for the animals in the web piece Animals Doubutsu.
The images on the surface of the astronauts and rocketships are inspired by early american fraktur folk art drawings of plants, birds and people.
The rocketships are between 14” and 20” Tall, and about 10“ wide.
Each piece weighs from 1 to 3 pounds.
