As an artist of puppetry, Jesse Mooney-Bullock creates work that spans many disciplines. Sculpture, live performance, painting and design, engineering, writing and storytelling converge in this art-form. He revels in the entire process – from conceptualizing on paper to final performance before a live audience. His hand-held puppets operate in ways unique to their role and purpose in a production, recognizing that a puppet must move as well as it looks. Mooney-Bullock has developed his skills in inventive engineering along side his abilities in fine sculpture and wood-carving. It is this synthesis of form and function that continually captivates him in his artwork.
