Cirque du Noir...

I've gotten a couple of emails about the piece I'm currently working on here so I thought I'd re-post my reply to lilackat. I'm glad everybody is interested already - before I'm even through, hehe!

Right now I'm working on my piece for the upcoming EBSQ show - "Cirque" (a gothic themed circus show). It's the first in a series I'm calling "Cirque du Noir" which is based on old posters for sideshow acts (like this one: http://www.sideshow-art.com/2headed.html ). The one I'm working on now features a "Two-Headed Girl" which is really of course a set of conjoined twins. I'm kinda going for the idea that the advertisements for the sideshows portrayed a glamorous fantastical sort of idealized version of the rather sad reality and exploitation. We'll see =)
