“Cabinet & Curiosity” an H.P.Lovecraft-inspired horror.

cu·ri·os·i·ty
ˌkyo͝orēˈäsitē/
  1. A strong desire to know or learn something.
    2. A strange or unusual object or fact
     …
    You know what it did to the cat. And now I’ve brought it out for you.
    “Cabinet & Curiosity” is an installation style piece inspired by the late H.P Lovecraft and his world of the twisted, tentacled, macabre. Installed inside a heavily distressed and “reborn” gothic style clock tower lives this horrid and rather enormous wriggling beast. It’s single, penetrating golden eye never loses it’s fixation, never blinks, and never ever stops shining. Atop the head of the beast are translucent pustules and tattered rudimentary wings and arm-like projections. The creature appears to be in a sort of recently disturbed repose, at first relaxing inside it’s age old and scratched to the bone cabinet home, only now beginning it’s slow creeping decent upon it’s new viewer.
    you have to see this one to believe it, but unless you’re in Washington state, these pictures (or a purchase) will have to do.
    “Cabinet & Curiosity” is currently on display at the Red Raven Gallery, Port Townsend WA for the “What the Moon Brings” Lovecraft show.  Available works can be purchased through the gallery  HERE.
    Be careful out there….

Coasters, Coasters, and more Coasters – Oh MY!

Ahhhh, fall. Quite possibly one of the best times of year, and undoubtedly..a busy time for an artist like me. This year is no exception and as anticipated I find myself stepping off of a 5 week creative blur with several impressive new pieces to share with you, each different and unique in it’s own unusual way.

Kicking off September right, my dream creature for La Luz de Jesus Gallery’s  much anticipated “Coaster Show”. For those of you outside Hollywood, CA: La Luz de Jesus Gallery has quite the reputation for being an ever-evolving arena of ground-breaking and original art shows, bizarre pop culture festivities, creative book signings, and yes,… even rogue taxidermy demos. Seeking to outdo themselves a second time around (the first show was a smash success of course, but why settle) the La Luz team invited virtually everyone from the fine art circuit to accept, tinker, and return what would later be over 1,500 mini masterpieces of lowbrow coasterific art. But why Coasters you ask? To coincide with LA’s Beer week of course, and to remind the world of the inherent beauty of approachable, hilarious, absurd art for drunken patrons sake. This is my favorite kind of show: over-the-top and sometimes, even under the belt line.

Here’s my contribution; a dreamy Raven I dreamed up, aptly named: “Dream Raven” (I know, I know..I’m a master with words.)
