Road Runner's Death Scenes

Death Scene: While Waiting for a Train to Pass, the Roadrunner is Fatally Clubbed with a Stop Sign (2003)

In the Looney Tunes cartoon, the Road Runner always managed to survive death traps set by Wile E. Coyote. But not in Rosemarie Fiore's artwork!

In her artwork series "Death Scenes," Rosemarie constructed elaborate ceramic dioramas where the Road Runner always died at the end! It got stung to death by bumble bees, stabbed to death in a cactus patch, squashed by jet-propelled pogo stick, and so on!

The ideas and the titles are absolutely brilliant. I wish there was a bit more skill and craft in the actual work though. The scenes are composed in a style that demonstrates a true love for the original cartoons as if they are homages, but the modeling is very rough and is only saved by the coloring.
