Illuminated Sculpture, Explanatory Paintings, Hand Illustrated Children’s Books
by Wolfram Alderson
Inspired by Themes & Characters
in the Sci-Fi Epic Pupazzo Universo
Several years in to writing Pupazzo Universo, a science fiction epic, Wolfram has developed a series of illuminated sculptures, explanatory paintings, and a hand illustrated children’s books series based on characters and themes in the work.
The Puppet of Love Show follows up on the successful premier of the Love Icon Show and features works that Wolfram describes as “illuminated sculpture-paintings.” The pieces average six feet high and five feet wide, and are multidimensional with complex elements on multiple planes – all lighted with incandescent and LED light. Supporting the larger illuminated works, are a series of “explanatory paintings” depicting scenes and themes from Pupazzo Universo. Returning works from the Love Icon Show will include a Massive Love Altar, Tunge, Marflow, Chikenz, and G-32.
First Viewing of Pupazzo Universo Children’s Book Series – Hand-scratched and illustrated Art Books inspired by the Pupazzo Universo Sci Fi Epic, in Wolfram’s “Primitive Intergalactic” style. Readings for children and other related events to be announced in the future.
Utterances of the Heart – “sculptural sentences” about universal love, in German.
Explanatory Paintings – sgraffito works composed of gesso, modeling paste, acrylic, and “scratches” in laminated wood, depicting characters, scenes, and themes from Pupazzo Universo, a sci-fi epic in the works by Wolfram Alderson.
Readings from Pupazzo Universo – the science fiction epic which is the mother of all Wolfram’s art.
