Doktor A’s ‘Oscar Lynchworthy’ for Conjoined: II

  • by

Last month Doktor A confused the heck out of all of us with a rather strange teaser of his piece for Chet Zar’s Conjoined II at Copro Nason. Well suspicions be damned for he has just released a full reveal of he who is named Oscar Lynchworthy!

A briefing:

Constructed without limbs Oscar was a surly child.
He riled against the world feeling sidelined in his inability to do just about anything.
His parents offered to purchase appendages for him, but he adamantly remained in his self imposed funk.
His bitterness grew and festered for many years until one day he had an awakening.
A calling, a purpose, a vocation beckoned.
He would become a critic!

Oscar stands 16″ tall and is constructed from styrene, epoxy resin, vinyl, lead, glass, steel and rubber, with a vintage clockwork key fixed into his back. The splintered woodgrain finish is incredible — more beauty shots below!

Conjoined: II opens Jan. 21st and runs through Feb. 11th, 2012.

Alrighty folks … you’ve seen the teasers, you’ve read of the ass-kicking insanity that is currently unfolding in Albuquerque and Austin … now here is some more candy for the eyeballs and the ‘officially official’ details from the man himself, Mr. Brandt Peters:

Hot damn. TRIGGER is set to tyrannize Stranger Factory Jan. 6th with a myriad of 2- and 3-dimensional works. For the first time we’ll get to see these two reinterpret each other’s toys and construct some of the most menacing customs to date.
