TITLE: Trap Jaw
DATE: 2011
MEDIUM: charcoal, paper, mdf, cow jaw bone
DIMENSIONS/RUN TIME: 19″ x 13 1/2″ x 2 1/2″
DESCRIPTION/STATEMENT: Trap Jaw combines a charcoal drawing of a bird skull with the jaw bone of a cow. The name invokes a popular villain from the 80s cartoon He- man. Trap jaw was a pitiful creature with a fleshy head and an iron jaw. My interpretation combines disparate parts to create a similar pitiful but ultimately vile looking beast.
