The Elisabeth Higgins O'Connor sculptures are certainly different. Taking the familiar and comforting character of the stuffed animal and transforming it into a nightmarish creature definitely sets her sculptures apart from those of other artists.
These seven-foot stuffed figurines are made out of discarded textiles, fabrics and cushions which create this vomit-like effect of these characters. If you happen to be or know a huge fan of Donnie Darko, these sculptures are definitely worth a look.
Implications - And even if you don't, they're worth a look. The No-Names are scaled to just slightly taller than average human size, and the No-Names encourage identification while implying menace. The construction of the quilts and fabrics is done in a patchwork fashion, creating a soft armor that is tied together by skeins of twine. What's not to love?
