New York based artist Meryl Smith's sculptures create an odd bridge between creature and inanimate object, like her 'Hog Ball'. They really sing surrealism. On Halloween, she swaps the usual 'sexy' devil or vampire female costume option for something far more gruesome - 'Me giving birth to myself'. Excellent. See Meryl's blog for further costume ideas.
Her work space and home is featured in 'The Selby is in Your Place', available at Artwords.
