The Love Parade


The Love Parade
Helen Shafer Garcia
currently on display at the Fallbrook Art Center

My latest creation consists of  handbuilt ceramic sculptures depicting creatures of all sorts.

The instillation is a reflection and reaction to the current administration. The parade consists of  acceptance and inclusion with characters that reflect all types of beings. The names of the characters are carried over from song titles and TV shows from the past. The adornments show  military and peaceful symbols in a combination for reflection. The hats were derived from research from military war outfits. My hope above all is  to portray the good in beings without malice.
