Burnel Penhaul aka “The Transformer”


2004 40 cm (h) x 43 cm (d)

Made up of a head, collar, and cage helmet piece, the 2004 bust is a part of four portraits of Burnel Penhaul, a central figure in the Alternative Miss World events. The pieces revolve around his transformative energy in the guise of his
distinctive AMW characters and other costumes.

Made of resin, wire mesh, glass, found objects, fibreglass, beads, plant basket, metal sheet, faux eyelashes, and acrylic paint.

Shown at “Andrew Logan – An Artistic Adventure” (2008) at The Gallery, Ruthin Craft Centre and “Shonky: The Aesthetics of Awkwardness” at the Hayward Touring Gallery.
