George Rodriguez with Moises Salazar

"I enjoy using glitter as a primary material for decoration. It is easily accessible and produced in a multitude of colors and considered taboo for male adults to use. Glitter is glamorous to me as it shines and catches your attention from any distance. I used a flower and vine pattern over the surface of the grasshopper as a traditional way of decorating objects with high social status. Through the inclusion of tufting in yarn around the head with crochet flowers, I make the grasshopper feel regal. This is how I show the power of this creature. In nature the males of the species usually have the brightest and most showy colors. I want my grasshopper to hold the same space for me".
