Frigid Jr.

Frigid Jr. (inspired by Gabriel Setoun’s 1920 children’s poem, Jack Frost) – Hand-distressed frame; beer; Epsom salts; dried honey locust thorns; sterling silver paint; watercolours; black paint; matte varnish; cardboard; colour print of antique Victorian daguerreotype; colour print of icicles; colour print of winter grunge wallpaper; hand-stained colour print of vintage “Frigid Jr.” embalming fluid bottle label

For, creeping softly underneath
  The door when all the lights are out,
Jack Frost takes every breath you breathe,
  And knows the things you think about.
