A Gibblegump Nest
‘A Gibblegump Nest’ part of the Okemordyn© range is a one of a kind exhibition piece.
I have combined nature, needle felting, sculpting, casting, painting and imagination to create a real mixed texture piece. The mother Gibblegump and all three different sized babies are removable. The babies sit inside their nest pods and the mother is resting on a leafy bed.
You’ll notice this Gibblegump is sitting rather than standing like my previous release. There will be some pieces similar to this, but smaller and each individual, at ToyCon UK in April along with the full blind box series of all four Okemordyn© creatures.
This is my finished piece for the ‘Around the World in 80 Toys’ exhibition in February/March 2014 (part of the Adelaide Fringe Festival, the biggest arts festival in the Southern Hemisphereat) at the Espionage Gallery, Adelaide Suite 1, Level 2, 93 Rundle Mall, Adelaide, SA, 5000 Espionage-Gallery Adelaide
‘It’ll be a monster of an event, with the exhibition, a 3 week Toy festival with Toy Workshops, a ‘one-night Toy challenge’ for local artists and other creatives visiting for the Fringe. There’ll be other events and promotions, all to help raise awareness of the Designer Toy Scene in Australia, as well as promoting all local, national & international artists involved.’ Nic Bic
