The section includes works created for costume designer Colleen Atwood; Grishkoff Heirloom Sculptures; and Grishkoff Wearables.Commission work has influenced my conceptual process and how I solve creative problems as an artist. I enjoy the challenge of working with new concepts and materials that expand the evolution of my work. The pre-meditated outcomes and expectations of a commission differ greatly from making a work of art with no constraints. The works made for film become props.In contrast, my Heirloom Sculptures uses cherished artifacts gifted to me from a client.These items are then assembled into a singular work to be handed down to family members or close friends.
Alice and Wonderland Tools and Wearables These wearables and sculptural tools were commissioned by costume designer Colleen Atwood to be used in Tim Burton's upcoming sequel, Alice and Wonderland, Into the Looking Glass. My aim was to create work with a circa 1875 aesthetic imagined a third larger in scale than the human body. The Hatter Clan, better known as The Little People, fell into an ant hill and were shrunk forever. They found themselves surrounded with objects the ants had gathered over time. These works will be worn and used by the Hatter Clan family in the film.
