LA///FIRST LOOK: JESSICA JOPLIN’S STEAMPUNK MENAGERIE
JESSICA JOPLIN's steampunk menagerie of would-be animals and mythological creatures failed to impress no one at her "Clockwork Circus" opening at Culver City's BILLY SHIRE FINE ARTS this weekend. Renowned for her technical prowess in rendering all manner of imaginary animalia using antique brass parts along with bones, bullet casings, and other unlikely materials that she carefully manipulates, Joplin echoes the otaku attention to detail of her Japanese counterparts who comprise the majority of the scratchbuilt sculpture community. Flawless in their design and uncannily lifelike despite their inherent impossibility, the retro-futurism of Joslin’s creatures’ is a welcome departure from the glassy technology and Apple store minimalism of 21st Century life.
