Whistler’s Mother Parody (Bear-ody)

 This 24”X18” stretched canvas and is painted using acrylic colors, while incorporating the bear parts made of mohair fabric, into a low-relief or bas-relief picture.  It appears to be a flat painting, however, note the picture showing the construction. The dress parts are also raised painted canvas, applied in layers using a quit-like appliqué technique. Detail lace and cap fabric are applied cotton fibers, with a glass eye and embroidered nose and mouth.

“Somebody’s Mother”

“Mother” is a full-body German mohair teddy. My 18-inch dolly-bear pattern is fully articulated with 5 cotter-pin joints, Loc Line in the arms/legs, and leather paw pads.  She is wearing a simple cotton Quaker-style dress and looking very prim in her Dutch bonnet.  She can stand and pose or be seated on her wooden chair with her feet resting on her little wooden stool as seen in the iconic picture painted by Whistler, in 1887. Who knows if that was really his mother but mine is definitely a Teddy bear parody. OOAK 2014 at $395.00 plus tax and shipping.
