Textile art by Mister Finch

Self-taught artist Mr. Finch creates animals and other objects that seem to stem from Alice’s Wonderland. Inspired by the rolling hills and mossy woods near his home in Yorkshire, Finch forms flowers, insects and birds that fascinate him with their amazing life cycles and extraordinary nests and behaviour.

He then goes hunting for vintage textiles – velvet curtains from an old hotel, a threadbare wedding dress or a vintage apron – and transforms them into all sorts of beasts and toadstools. According to Mr. Finch, his figures are “storytelling creatures for people who are also a little lost, found and forgotten”.

Paul Thek - The Tomb (1967)

"Officially Paul Thek died in 1988, but really he died twice. In 1967 he conceived The Tomb (frequently called Death of a Hippie) - the summation of a decade, a cultural ethos, and a career. It was the piece he never lived down and never lived up to.

Thek became the unwilling prophet of the failure of counterculture idealism and could not regain the tragicomic intensity of The Tomb or his Technological Reliquaries, wax sculptures of raw meat and body parts encased within vitrines.”

The Tomb consisted of a one-story-high, pale pink structure reminiscent of a Sumerian ziggurat, within which lay a full-size, painstakingly crafted effigy of Thek himself.

Painted pale pink, the replicant featured long hair and a moustache like Thek’s own, and wore a double-breasted suit and a necklace made of human hair, as well as other jewelry. Its tongue was sticking out of its mouth, and the fingers on its right hand - Thek’s working hand - were cut off, leaving bloody stumps. The fingers hung inside a pouch near the figure. (The artist was thus symbolically silenced, unable to do his work.)

The piece is now considered one of the great lost works of the 1960s. The figure disappeared after Thek refused to accept it from a shipping company in 1982, apparently because of damage the piece had incurred in transit.”

From her As I Am Interview:
Asian bodies, particularly the bodies of Asian women, are almost always depicted as being for the visual and sexual consumption of others… I’m tired of dealing with those types of ideas that people have, and in some way, photography is my way of processing through all that.

From her Le Sigh Interview on what inspires her:
Conversations with other artists (or other people in general) - Talking to other people is a really big inspiration/influence. From conversations I’m having with people, sometimes they’ll ask me a question or they’ll say something I’d just sincerely never thought of, which prompts me to sometimes try my hand at other things. For example, my friend Elle Perez recently asked me why I’m so interested in photobooths, and nobody had ever asked me that before. After that, I thought about it more and decided I wanted to be a little more focused and intentional with photobooth work.
