About dani feige
The lighting was weird, like when a fire turns the world a hazy surrealistic orange.
A chair stood its ground on the sidewalk before me. Buildings, centurion like, surrounded me on all sides. To my left a small dilapidated house.
The front door was open, and despite the overall feeling of unease I was drawn toward it. The shadow land of the creaky porch hid the old man. He watched. He smiled. The hair on the back of my neck stood as if ready to flee. My feet were frozen.
The whiskers on his chin caught the light, and his cold blue eyes cut through the underworld of the porch. His toothless mouth unhinged and emitted a cackle which unfroze my feet from their icy embrace. "Pull up a chair" he wheezed. I fell backwards into the frigid stale air of the house.
There were chairs of all sizes, shapes, and forms stacked from floor to ceiling...and no way out.
I flew through it, my feet never touched the porch. Flailing, knees ground into the sidewalk.
Slow motion under the eerie orange haze. The world was suddenly silent.
I awoke sweating. Relieved.
It was only a nightmare.
Outside the sky is an hazy orange.
The unfamiliar within the familiar.
The world of dreams.
The world of make believe, where anything is possible.
These are what inspire and drive me to create.
Although primarily a printmaker, the trappings of the uncanny mind are often more easily released through the
combined efforts of printmaking, paint, collage, metal, books, and glass. Let theme and color dance before you like a lucid dream.
I am here to invite you into my uncanny world.
One of the uncanny things I am drawn to is the disguise of oneself. I make masks. I wrote a book...it's currently sitting with a publisher. I am going to give step by step instructions on how to make masks out of easy to find, cheap, everyday items. Hang on...it's going to be a wild ride!

When I reach 111.00 a month I will provide instructions on how to build a simple mask.
