Chris’ new assemblage “Baby Bottles” is a collection of some of his favorite objects. This vignette is pulled directly from his upcoming .08 calendar & inspiration guide “Crack Heads”. A antique rubber stamp holder found in a small Texas town’s office building becomes the body for a vintage cracked doll head and hands. Nineteen crusty found bottles, some adorn with anitque rhinestone broaches, round out the display. A small, tattered ball of aged thread adds a childlike feature.
The rubber stamp holder with head measures 8"x9". The tallest bottle is 9". This assemblage is pure Chris Brown.
