Peter Cheney
Chicken feet, Maquette, wood and paint

The Chicken Feet are an outgrowth of a theme that seems to just not want to go away. It started with a painting of a rooster, and then morphed into building Baba-Yaga Houses, and is now simmered down to the feet. Hopefully they suggest the presence of the whole bird, a forty foot tall chicken emerging from the woods.

Baba-Yaga is a Witch from Eastern European/Russian folklore. She lives in a house that stands on chicken feet. Though often used as a cautionary tale, the Baba-Yaga stories vary quite a bit. She might help you, she might eat you, you might never find her at all. I find the moral ambiguity very appealing.
 
Bio
