Stephen Gibb paints comically unsettling bits of surreal scenery, teeming with anthropomorphic foods, inanimate objects and animals.

One of my favorite things about art in this vein is that it seems to gently hint at some rather serious themes…while never taking itself too seriously.

I encourage you to read the titles of each piece, if you explore his online galleries.

From the artist bio:
The gory details…..
Stephen was dropped on his head as a baby while his mother was visiting the Museum of Modern Art. Ever since, he has been drawing, painting and scratching in a non-stop orgy of creation. His paintings are psychological offerings, rich in irony and distortions, bristling with sublime, psychotropic colours. Human forms struggle in an existential blending of mind and machine yet up through the conflict a subtle black humour percolates. Always wear your helmet.

Julianna Menna

From afar, you might think you’re looking at panels and portraits by one of the old masters.

But stepping closer you will see that Julianna Menna’s subjects differ ever so slightly from those in classical portraiture…in that they are inhuman and have no flesh.

Adornments spring from imaginary period costumes, unique yet strangely congruent with something that we…or a vaguely anthropomorphic species…might have invented in another time and place.

Halloween Countdown: Attack of the Killer Tomatoes Shirt

Posted in absurd, anthropomorphic, craft, film, halloween, humor, video with tags , , , , , , , on October 28, 2013 by shewalkssoftly

Due to illness, it’s been well over a year since I’ve done any kind of crafty project. I miss crafting every single day! Although I’m not actually able to leave the house this Halloween, that’s no excuse not to try to make my own fun here!

My lovely cousin Alaine and I had a mini craft party so I could make an idea I had been pondering this past week: ATTACK OF THE KILLER TOMATOES SHIRT!

If you are not familiar with this fine film, it is a must-see for any B-movie fan.

So here’s my shirt. I could see people perusing the booths of horror conventions wearing a fine killer tomato face.

Here it is, stuffed with a pillow, looking all round and evil (I’m way too skinny to give it its rightful shape).

I found a random bottle of green hairspray in the house (jackpot, right?) so I thought I’d make my hair into tomato “vines.” This was a marvelous failure. I couldn’t get much color to actually come out of the bottle, so I ended up with splotchy green patches here and there, and a whole lot of compressed air shooting in my face.

Now look at the camera and say FAIL!

I also made a valiant, though completely unsuccessful, effort with the bathroom mirror to get a picture that showed me with the entire T-shirt. I couldn’t use flash due to the reflection, and without flash I couldn’t stay still enough to get a shot that wasn’t blurry enough to be considered bad conceptual art.

Oh well.

As you may remember from Rabid Mouse Attack, I really enjoy making cheap, cheesy horror costumes. Are you dressing up this year? Did you make a costume?

Walter Potter

Many of us are no doubt aware of the fantastical Victorian taxidermy vignettes of Walter Potter, even if his name is not on our tongues. His Museum of Curiosities closed nearly four decades ago, and the collection was sold off in recent years.  “Mr Potter started his collection at the age of 19 when his canary died and he dissected the bird before stuffing it for display in the family summer house. His family kept his museum in Bramber, Sussex open after his death in 1918.”

The link to an article on the “recreation” of Potter’s museum for a limited exhibit has some wonderful images. We hope the ones below will whet your interest.
