Bart

After working with bones for the last few years,I felt my time with the medium had come to a natural end and I decided to just work with mixed media.  The Bart character in the cartoon the Simpsons is a fascinating character that I have grown up with, and this work has been mainly inspired by Bart. I began the work in January 2012 and ended in march 2012.

The bright blue feature represents Marge’s hair. This is the only physical resemblance to Marge the cartoon character. The rest of the figure is a reflection of a general womanhood. With the white cord running through the middle of the hole it looks as if the woman has just given birth. Just above the hole are the letters F.C.U.K the fashion label, and when those letters are rearranged they imply a sexual nature.

To decorate the figure I used mainly lollipop sticks. In addition to this there are bottle tops. Fragments of a mirror, jewellery, heart shapes formed from metal. I hoped the diverse materials would give some indication of the complexity of womanhood.

Bart

We recognise the central figure as Bart Simpson, but not as we commonly view him. On television over the many years he has mostly physically remained the same. I wanted to show a different reality where time and the environment takes it toll. Bart has grown up but is still tied to his background this also indicated by the white cord running through his belly. With his sombre face he is almost trapped with no way out.

Bart Simpson Face

With this close up of Bart, I hope one sees how much Bart has aged. I have used buttons to represent his pupils. I have used pieces of yellow plastic to make his face more vibrant, and strips of wire for his moustache.

Lisa Simpson is now a young woman, she is thin and wearing leather maybe this indicates the result of a rock chick life style. It is left to our imagination to guess what expression she has on her face.

Crusty, R.I.P dad

Crusty the clown looking nervous with a bleeding nose. Has he been thumped by Bart? On Bart’s arm is the word R.I.P dad. Yes his dad has died and Bart is beginning to look like him.
