Modern artifacts

Udell on PCDaily

Luann Udell moved from Vermont to California, switched her workspace from a barn to a small studio and added woodworking and box-making skills to her mix of media.

Now her polymer artifacts from lost cultures and imagined prehistories are sometimes housed in refinished antique boxes as in this Shrine: Red Deer Clan.

Her story’s a good one and you can read it and see an overview of her work on

Performance, polymer mashup

Vinsantos on PCDaily

New Orleans artist, Vinsantos puts his hoarder tendencies to good use in his Kreeture series of assemblage dolls.

“I see the art that I create as a mash-up of sculpture, assemblage, fashion design, makeup, and hair artistry.” “I also see it as the reinvention and preservation of beauty. The characters found in Kreeture stem from my years on the underground performance art circuit. I’ve spent many years in the public spotlight either as a live musician, a Drag artist, and more often as a combination of both,” he explains.

Vinsantos shadow box characters can be seen at Tresor Gallery and you can follow him on Facebook.
