This is my blazing (notice sun and stars and fireworks, hands upreached, and a cracking tower Tarot card) Rock Concert. I am especially fond of the singer with mike on stand and behind her biblical figures (found that strange religious card at a Barn sale). I have art cards of audience and some miniature people all dancing and jiving to the guitar player on the center acorn. I made a bleacher seat on the upper left of a shell I found on the beach. There are a few concert goers seated there and many wild women taking off their tops and dancing on ladders and a marble on the center floor. Those little figures are from Germany, where else? I hand painted in psychedelic colors the antique cigar box which encloses this miniature world. And of course, Mr. Peanut in the back left is the king of the piece.

    This piece is great! I love how much is going on, the scale, the combination of the little people toys and Mr. Potato Head. It totally captures the insanity of what goes on at a rock concert. Really like the go-go girl on top of the ladder as well as the folks on the balcony. Also that you mixed in b/w photos, the penguin audience and the fact that a seashell was used as the building block of the bleachers.

    I’m dying here. I love when I come across kitch that can be compared to the inside of my head! This is one of those items! So much going on here with an abundance of energy which makes me love this even more! I love the dancing girl on the ladder! I also love how Mr Potato Head looks as if he is directing a dance class! I love this piece.

    wow! really amazing! i love the guitarist on the red pine cone! i want to see this performance life-size on a real stage! i’m trying to imagine what they’d be playing…hey dennydillon, do perhaps you have a song (real or imagined) in mind (or at least perhaps a style of music) that would be emanating from this lovely guitar-centric ensemble?
