Cloned Chihuahua Ltd Ed Plate I
The plastic material artist William Sweetlove uses to create his eye-popping, smile-inducing sculptures is produced by way of a thermo-chemical reaction in crude oil called cracking ; and used by all members of The Cracking Art Group. An artist whose work has graced cities like L.A. and Paris, Sweetlove's sculptures are part Dada, part surreal, and part pop. The Cloned Chihuahua with Boots is a recreation of a Sweetlove sculpture as a decorative plate. Showing a paint-drenched Chihuahua in work boots, it retains the Cracking Art Group's message of eco-consciousness.
