Slug Toothpaste, a Wooden Carpet, and Will Schlough

Slug Toothpaste. Acrylic on panel, 9″x 20″.

I don’t know about you, but nothing makes me want to brush my teeth more than a slug on the bristles of my toothbrush. Just looking at it – yeah, I really want to brush my teeth. Preferably with some toothpaste, please! Objects take upon a fantastical new form when they come into the hands of sculptor and artist (and friend!), Will Schlough, creator of said slug toothpaste painting. Whether spatial, flat, public, or useful, Will’s art is “his way of communicating the way he interprets the world around him.”

Throw Floor. Salvaged red oak flooring, 1″x 25″x 53″.

If you just happen to be in the Pittsburgh area, mark your calendar to check out his show, “For(est) Sale,” from April 1 – 2 at the opening of new technology and art space, Assemble! The theme of Will’s show is “to imaginatively investigate society’s strange and ever-changing relationship with the environment, particularly the growing separation that humans have created between themselves and nature. The result is work that cleverly encourages the pursuit of simple joys.”
