CRYPTODERMIA

Surrealist wire sculpture & assemblage mounts. A non-animal ossuary of cryptid taxidermy.  

Horned Skulls, twisted creatures, and clawed hands made of wrapped and painted wire are mounted on carefully painted and distressed epoxied wooden mounts. Some glow in the dark, some are florescent, but by being made of wire all can be fully adjusted and articulated which invites a sense of play. Just don’t get them wet or feed them after midnight.

If you are interested in purchasing or commissioning a work of CRYPTODERMIA feel free to reach out to me at gardnerjedwards@gmail.com or check my upcoming event listings for EDWARDS ART + DESIGN Popup shop/Expo Booth dates and locations.   

***CRYPTODERMIA ONLINE STORE COMING VERY SOON***

EXPECTED RELEASE WINDOW: WEEK OF 11/18/18.

I’m in the process of building a Etsy Store front to sell CRYPTODERMIA and other physical artwork online. Once complete I will post the link for it here. This storefront will be separate than the one built into this site and will resolve a significant issue I’ve faced, namely easily calculated shipping costs. Not all available inventory will be listed. Large and over-sized items will not be available at launch. Look for promotions on my social media feeds for discounts and other special offers.

 

 

CRYPTODERMIA: MANIBUS

MOUNTED HANDS. PRAGMATIC SCULPTURE.

Each MANIBUS mount is made of sturdy wrapped wire which allows each piece to be contorted and arranged to the users unique specifications yet remain strong enough to hold its form under weight of held objects. Some can glow-in-the-dark and some have bees in them. All are 100% unique. They can keep your keys safe or hold on to your coat. Flip off your friends or hail a taxi in demonic style. You could even set them up right and have them hold open your cookbook. Everyone could use a hand once in a while.  

 

CRYPTODERMIA: MICIS & ALIA

LITTLE SCRAPS. TINY EXPERIMENTS IN FORM AND COLOR. THINGS THAT ARE NOT LIKE THE OTHERS.

Smaller and more abstract then my larger works. These various pieces take on a variety of shapes and colors.
