First off : I assumed Snailbooty was female - perhaps Snailbooty is a male raised exclusively by vixens in the back of an abandoned Roman toystore. I am astounded to discover this great work here and not through the art gallery market.That's to the detriment of the art world.I think Snailbooty is the most interesting new fine art talent in a long time, making work which is simultaneously both bold and subtle. Superb by all the formal criteria, the work is category busting,haunting, amusing and multivalent. She's a genuine world class talent. My admiration and envy know no end. www.flickr.com/ph...

micro cosmos of fears and forgotten horrors anti superheros show all their isolation in these almost phobic tiny frames by lacking their size we are driven to come closer and look at lingering sadness in their static expression -showing us how much we actually share with monster under our bed. thank you for removing a pillow from my face when there's blood on TV...!

beyond good, brilliant, and what ever other adjective I could come up with, but I'll continue...thoroughly captivating; riveting, and fantastically, freakishly, gorgeous. Thank you!

other is correct. other is apposite. bothersome puppets and worrisome dolls. those charged plastic eyes that reflect our collective weltschmerz speak volumes. dislocation, doll looks at doll looks at fracture looks at us. looking at them. this is, quite simply, one of the most visually energetic streams that grace flickr. original is often cliche. in this instance, it is actuality. that small plastic figures, that a doll, can worry, dislocate and offer such discomfort is a simulacrum of our own selves. we are become plastic. we are become dolls. we dance as if our lives were designed by a coin, dropped in a machine for the pleasure of the observer, the grey buyer. this artist should be known. this work is wonderful, sublime and singularly descriptive of the time that surrounds us all. this is a creator who demands eyes. a creator who deserves all eyes to be turned toward the work. beautiful, plastic, framed and offered freakishness. a mirror most disturbing. all should look, consider, walk away, and adore the echo. may snailbooty gain the recognition this original and powerful body of work deserves. superb. the|G|™

The type of creative genius that could only be described via a neologism that has yet to be coined ... Snailbooty is a truly unique artist and one of my favorite Flickr contacts.

No doubt about it: You will not find another stream like snailbooty's. So brilliant, so entertaining, so addicting; complexly layered in pop-culture and intelligence. No need to fear you won't 'get it', though. If there is one thing that can be guaranteed here, it's that this body of artwork is downright ugly-laugh… Read more

Snailbooty's art is disturbing in both senses of the word: creepy, yes, deliciously so--but it also moves you. To be disturbed is to be moved, to be taken to a place you've never been before. So in that sense, travel is disturbing, romance is disturbing, dreams are disturbing. Snailbooty has such an intimate handle on … Read more

Snailbooty's art is disturbing in both senses of the word: creepy, yes, deliciously so--but it also moves you. To be disturbed is to be moved, to be taken to a place you've never been before. So in that sense, travel is disturbing, romance is disturbing, dreams are disturbing. Snailbooty has such an intimate handle on how things work under the surface that all her artwork makes a subconscious sort of sense, and you understand it without understanding why. She's tapped into the vein of dreams, memory and morals, and took vacation pictures. We're lucky that we get to see them.

As you know, I'm a fan. I think it would be bliss to see a gallery full of your work, divine madness all bundled together. Your sense of humor and creativity is endless and unique most of all. There's only one snailbooty and you are an inspiration!

Snailbooty's photography is simply brilliant. Her imagination and eye for the weird are inspiring. I am always looking forward to the latest in the bizarre world of the Snailbooty.

hard to say what is surpasing which - the wit with which this photos have been composed, or the execution of photography itself. it creeps me out and cracks me up. awesome.

Ms.Booty is the finest aaah-tist in all the whirrled (period)

We prostrate at the melted one armed statue of snailbooty, and hail to the goddess of oddism.

I always love to look at her art which always brings to mind very diff. feelings, almost like seeing a thriller film or going to a haunted house!!! Truely a excellent artist!

It's always exciting to see Snailbooty's newest creation. Eye candy in the best sense. I hope one day to own an original. Hint, hint. Just when you think she's the queen of 2-D art she goes and blitzes the 3-D world. Crazy good. Humbling. Inspiring.

Snailbooty does not belong on flickr. She belongs in the Smithsonian as a national treasure, perfectly capturing our twisted pop-culture-collective-poisoned-psyche, but in a vey humanistic way. And with great photography, I might add. It's no easy task to photograph those little F*#*ers, and these are exquisite.

April 5, 2007

snailbooty is completely brilliant. i feel so fortunate to be able to share in his cooly-weird vision!

December 6, 2006

Part of me wishes I was Snailbooty but Snailbooty does it so much better than I could. These here pictures make life more bearable, a lot more fun and are suitable for framing. View one and view the rest absolutely free. Long live Snailbooty!

October 4, 2006

man, you've obviously got enough testimonials already, but i couldn't pick a single image to comment on 'cos they're all so DAMN GOOD. And i'm a grumpy old bastard who doesn't like much of anything. snailbooty rocks. end of story.
