 "I saw—with shut eyes, but acute mental vision—I saw the pale student of unhallowed arts kneeling beside the thing he had put together. I saw the hideous phantasm of a man stretched out, and then, on the working of some powerful engine, show signs of life and stir with an uneasy, half-vital motion. Frightful must it be, for supremely frightful would be the effect of any human endeavor to mock the stupendous mechanism of the Creator of the world."  Frankenstein

Mockupations Logo for web3.png

Mockupations is a series of satirical characters that affords us the opportunity to strap on the old Jack boots and do some emotional puddle-jumping, treading rather aggressively on topics that would otherwise demand delicate posturing. The catharsis provided but such an invitation and activity includes not only laughter, and thus good unto itself, but also a sense that we may in some way come to terms with that which ails our community or humanity. Albeit macabre in nature, the birth and life of these straw men are an exercise in living fiction, like an orphanage of inflatable monsters in need of a little yard time to let loose. Without such an opportunity, we might just find ourselves in a world too afraid to laugh at our own fragility.

South Paw

Keith Amrine

In tonights edition of Pet Yours Today, proudly sponsored by the ASPCA, we would like to introduce you to whom we have lovingly names South Paw.  This here little pussy cat may look like he has been through the wars, but trust us when we say he's a lover.  We promise. For just a quick signature in blood, you can adopt this little lovebug.  

He does stare a bit; you may feel it around the house, in the shower, when you fall asleep, but know that he probably loves you. Just don't look him in the eye.  From time to time he may bring you things.  Accept them, no matter what. He's a good boy. We Swear.

The sooner would be better. It's not that we don't love having him around...oh no, we have ALL enjoyed his company. It's just that we don't want to limit how much love and appreciation you deserve by keeping you here with us...I mean HIM with us.

Listen, if you can't make it, then please send someone else. Anyone else.  He eats a lot. By that I mean you should not have any other pets.  That would be best. Um, it appears that there are no other animals left for adoption, and Bob seems to be missing. 

Come!  Adopt South Paw!  We beg you!

About Keith

My Story

After 13 years of teaching literature, composition, creative writing and media literacy in higher education, and financially malnourished for the effort, it was time for a change. An inner compulsion to create, to synthesize, laid dormant for far too long, stifled by the cumbersome responsibilities of endless paper grading.

If necessity is the mother of reinvention, then adaptation was the mantra throughout my life.  Partial color blindness capped my youthful career in painting like it would for any aspiring bomb disposal expert, and so I once again rummaged through my back pocket for a set of skills on which I could not only find happiness, but stability as well.  It was the classic uniquely human crisis; to do what you love and survive.

Out of that pocket came that dusty old sculpture minor I received in my undergraduate work, neglected but not forgotten.  It was a supplement for the passion I have for the humanities, but never afforded the opportunity to grow alongside my other expressive interests as a student of the Renaissance.

It was my big bang.  Shortly after creating my multimedia project entitled Mockupations, an opportunity arose to procure some tools.  Once they fell into my hands, I have been giving birth ever since.

Artistic Vision

The creative Lens

There is a certain levity and profound power to be enjoyed through the act of creation. Whether it is to simply say "I made this," or a deeper more implicit drive to confess or expound through the medium of our choosing, synthesis  of art comes with it the surrender to world of something we have loved, nurtured, worried for, sweat over, learned from, dreamed about, and admittedly lamented over when it gets adopted. 

I have given birth many times through writing and graphic art (Mockupations), but sculpture as a medium operates in a realm that is both tangible and comforting to me; it is grounding in a world where reality is fifty percent perception.  Often inspired by literature, my sculptures are an effort to bring beauty to the mundane, to share the Promethean torch and illuminate the curious.
