Inkling is pleased to present to you our next gallery showcase, a series of whimsical ‘hunting trophies’ by local artist Ben Rumback. The ‘trophies’ are hand cut and sanded from 1/4 inch birch and lovingly hand painted. All of the trophies come mounted on plaques that were also hand made by Ben. Many of the plaques have been wrapped in gold or silver leaf, and some are painted. The trophies are light and hang easily on a nail, and range in size from the very small (mouse) to the moderately large (a very fierce dinosaur). These illustrative sculptures are fit to adorn the walls of any brave hunter, be they children or grown folks with an appreciation for whimsy.
A select few from the previous collection ‘Embroidustrations from a Wild Imagination’ will also be on display. These ‘soft sculptures’ are illustrations composed of cut felt, designed and completely hand sewn by the artist.
