2nd post

I am amking a figure that is supposed to be tryign to come through this membrane sort of thing. This idea abviously is going along with my creepy thing i have going on. Right now im tryign to research what material to use for the membrane. I found a few options, some being in the links i posted. I may use a large sheet of rubber latex but i have to search around more. Resin is also another option, which would turn out a ittle differently tyhan i originaly imagined but i'm not sure yet. Theres a couple of websites that were helpful in this process. The first image in my head looked something liek what i had above.
The most recent dream i had is not quite relevant but there were two guys trying to attack myself and someone else. So this other person slit one of the guy's throat and then i hit him in the head with a spatula and it fell off. As i was wondering if i killed him I was told not to worry because he could still breath without his head on. Weird.
Since we are talking about dreams and i have been thinking about nightmares, one visual memory that has stuck with me is a dream i had over the summer. I was in a house that was possessed by some demon spirit. I went into the basement that was broken down and dark. There was a hole in the wall maybe about a foot wide and 6" vertical. It was around eye level. I felt the presence of the demon in there. It was quite creepy. I am trying to make a painting out of that memory.

^ (Those are a couple pictures of Adrian Arleo's work)I want to continue the track i was on last semester in ceramics, which would be working with the figure. I have been looking at some ceramic artists such as Judy Moonelis, Adrian Arleo, Mark Burns, Debra W. Fritts and some others. Also the photographer Roger Ballen has inspired me with eery feel of the in his work. My first piece is either going to be a sort of mutated torso melting onto the floor, or i am going to start working on a smaller scale of a different project i have in mind. I've enjoyed giving the figure a creepy feel and i also want to add some sexuality into my work which i have started to work a little bit with the past semester but i did not execute the project i had in mind. Basically i have a whole bunch of ideas i just don't know exactly what ones i will be accomplishing this semester.

here's some artist websites. there are also a couple of sites that are of interest to me and may influence my work.
