Commissions and preparations for a large upcoming project have kept me away from the electronic world for awhile, so I thought it might be nice to share some of what I’ve been working on. Here are some photographs of works-in-progress, at various stages of development…
The gracious folks at Halloween Artist Bazaar have just posted an interview with yours truly… http://www.halloweenartistbazaar.com/featured-artist-interview-february-2016-grayson-fogg/
So I guess Grayson Fogg got so busy (I know, who isn’t?) he forgot to promote some recent pieces before posting them. I’m too tired to paraphrase him, so I’ll just quote directly:
“I’m afraid that my work schedule of late has been so hectic that I have been remiss in my promotional duties. Far from posting teaser images of soon-to-be-released pieces, and reminding visitors of the upcoming EHAG Emporium (which opened on the last day of September), I am only now getting to the former task, when it is a moot point for one of the pieces. A sculpted bust, “Spooked”, and a color portrait, “Bumble and Squeak”, were my offerings for this most recent Emporium. Although the former has already sold, I will nonetheless include images here (as Etsy removes images once the piece has sold), along with images of the portrait, which is still available. My apologies for the tardiness and confusion.”–Grayson Fogg

Please excuse my tardiness, but the time is here at last…and now so am I. For the pieces offered in the 24-hour Midsummer Night’s Scream Sale, please head over to that enchanted space usually occupied by the EHAG Emporium: http://ehagemporium.blogspot.com/ . For the pieces offered by Mr. Richard Moore––you may contact him through the comments here (I will pass the word onto him immediately), or you may message him through his Facebook page, at https://www.facebook.com/richard.moore.7982 . “Haughty”, the first of the two, is priced at $240, and the second, “A New Bride”, is $250. Thank you for your attention, and I hope you enjoy the sale.
On June 20th, the good folks at EHAG are running a 24-hour Midsummer Night’s Scream Sale, from dawn till dusk. I will be offering several pieces at reduced prices, and Richard Moore–never before represented in the wondrous EHAG Emporium– will have two brand new, never-before-seen pieces for sale. Here are a couple of modest teasers of the latter.
Remember, that’s the 20th, at http://ehagemporium.blogspot.com/ . If there are any pieces you may have had your eye on but felt were a little out of your price range, contact me by the 19th and I might add your piece to the sale.
I just added three new pieces to my Etsy shop (https://www.etsy.com/shop/TheAutumnlands?), with a new color piece coming on the 31st of this month, at the EHAG Emporium (http://ehagemporium.blogspot.com/). These pieces are smaller and simpler, making them more affordable for those looking for some spooky art without the usual fine art price tag. This will be an ongoing series, so be sure to check back for more updates.
Recently, one of my first and favorite pieces, “Halloween Frolics”, sold, which means (of course) that the original is no longer available. However, prints are now available at http://fineartamerica.com/profiles/5-richard-moore.html .
It has recently been my great good fortune to be selected to participate in a group show at The Auguste Clown Gallery, in Australia, from October 31st to November 23rd. It is to be an international show, and many outrageously talented artists shall be represented, amongst them Absurd Toys, Abbybelle, Alec Huxley, Augie Pagan, Avery Palmer, Benjamin Lukas, Bennett Slater, Bev Hogue, Buddy Nestor, Casey Weldon, Cat Rabbit, Cheshire Street, Chet Zar, Chris Haas, Clare Toms, Cody Williams, Dan Harding, Dave Burke, Dave Kohlmon, David Richardson, Don Picton, Double Parlour, Emi Slade, Eric Alos, Eric van Straaten, Eva Devon, Frank Forte, Geoffrey Gersten, Grayson Fogg, Horrible Adorables by Jordan Elise, Inga Lena, Irene Garcia, Jake Waldron, Jasmine Worth, Jason Hite, Jed Leiknes, Jeff Christensen, Jen Musatto, Joanna Mulder, Joe Scarano, John Pinkerton, Jonathan Payne, Joshua Harker, Kamilla Mlynarczyk, Kane Kokaris, Kat Caro, Lacey Bryant, Larkin, Lee Harvey Roswell, Lori Nelson, Mai-Ja, Mark Brown, Martin Tomsky, Matthew Dutton, Matthew Levin, Melanie Ashton, Paul Welsh, Puzgle, Ramon Maiden, Rudy Faber, Sandra Arteaga, Selena Leardini, ShirrStone Shelter Dolls, Steph Sciullo, Steve Ferrera, Tate Steinsiek, Tim Lee, Tokyo Jesus, Vincent Cacciotti, and Zombienose. Rather intimidating company, to say the least, but I am nontheless honored to be included.
While I realize that intercontinental air travel to attend an art show may be beyond the means of many (my humble self included), I heartily encourage any and all who can make it to stop by and enjoy what will no doubt be a macabre feast for the eye and mind alike. The Auguste Clown’s astounding array of art may also be enjoyed on your computing machine, by visiting http://www.augusteclown.com/ .
The gentleman cadaver bust’s face is completed, including blue lips. A close-up shows the “wet” sheen on his milky, undead eyes. The left eye is meant to be rolling up in its socket, but I’m not sure how that reads. (You’ll have to forgive the absence of a few steps at this juncture. Photographing my work as I go is still a relatively new concept to me, and I often forget.) His suit is painted in an intense color scheme evocative of Halloween, followed by the “undercut”, which is given a faux-stone treatment. The base is first painted purple, and subsequent layers of black applied as washes, to allow the base coat to show through in places, unifying the color scheme. Finally, the base is coated with a glossy varnish, and the head with a satin finish, which is then brought down with applications of a dulling medium. And there you have it: One completed old cadaver, ready for the mantle.
