Seeking refuge with Rose 2011
Original Assemblage by Elliott De Casare
H 14' W 10' D 2.5'
Drawing and found materials
This piece was developed over the course of a year long period, initiated by a photograph of Rose Williams, sister of American playwright Tennesse Williams. The original 35 mm photograph depicts Rose Williams in the period immediately following her pre frontal labotomy. Rose Williams was the muse of her brother Tennesse Williams in addition to being the inspiration for the character Laura Wingfield in The Glass Menagerie.
''Laura is like a piece of her own glass collection, too exquisitely fragile to move from the shelf.''
-Tennesse Williams speaking on his sister Rose
HYBRID VVITCHCRAFT Group Exhibition features original Dollhaus artists and Dollhaus II solo artists. Introducuing new artists for 2022. This is a installation site specific witchwood. That runs until Hallows Eve.
Elliott De Casare we like to think of as a pure imagineer. This is his second submission to Dollhaus II, his first was in the opening of the Dollhaus II after the long pandemic where the gallery was forced to close for over 6 months. De Casare submitted a painting to THE FVCKED UP DIZNEY group exhibition.
Wander into the forest of The Dollhaus II and behold the Hybrid Witchcraft.
A HYBRID IS A COMBINATION BETWEEN TWO SPECIES, BORN FROM THE UNION OF THOSE TWO. A SURGO-WITCH HYBRID IS A SUPERNATURAL CROSSBREED BETWEEN A PURE WITCH AND A SURGO WITCH. HYBRIDS POSSESS THE ABILITIES OF WITCHES AND SURGOS AS WELL AS THEIR WEAKNESSES. THEY ARE MORE POWERFUL THAN REGULAR SURGOS, BUT ARE SAID TO BE WEAKER THAN WITCHES DUE TO THEIR SURGO HALF WITHHOLDING THEM BACK, SUCH AS THEIR INABILITY TO PRACTICE FULL EARTH MAGIC. DESPITE THIS, MANY HYBRIDS HAVE SPECIAL, UNIQUE ABILITIES NOT MANIFESTED BY PURE WITCHES.
