Today I give you the Van Eaton Galleries Mad Monster Party Group Show. I wish I could see this one on person!
See the rest here.
Thank you, Street Anatomy for pointing me toward Beth Cavener Stitcher’s Four Humors sculpture series. I had admired her work in the past, but was rather intrigued by these representations of Hippocratic medicine.
This must have been a powerful exhibit to see in person.
See more shots and info here.
Last month, I gathered a “Death and the Maiden” image collection on my hard drive, figuring I would do some sort of theme week with it here. But like things tend to do for obsessive image collectors, it kind of got lost in the shuffle.
Roq La Rue Gallery has one upped me with this nicely curated collection in their current Death and the Maiden group show. Here are some previews:
Seattle folks (if you’re out there), let me know how the show is in person if you attend!
I happen to be out of town right now, but I wish I could see Thomas Woodruff’s Four Temperaments show in person. These lushly colored alchemical fusions of flora and fauna are undoubtedly a treat for the eyes up close.
Color schemes and themes reflect the four temperaments: sanguine, choleric, phlegmatic and melancholic (named after the ancient theory of bodily humors).
See the rest of the exhibit on line at the P.P.O.W. Gallery.
While not a Halloween exhibit per se, I feel this is completely appropriate for a Halloween countdown. Laurie Litpon’s new show at Last Rites is gorgeous, of course.
Lipton’s outrageously detailed pencil drawings are a phenomenal sight…especially in person. If you can possibly make it to this show, I highly recommend it.
I’ve been meaning to post about The Elvis Mobile for ages now.
This amazing vehicle is the brainchild and handiwork of two of the coolest people I’ve ever met: Jo David and Marlow Harris, of Unusual Life.
It started as a simple whim (Marlow presented a sketch as a joke…Jo made it happen), and there’s nothing I love more than when whims become reality.
See guys? If you can dream it up…you can do it! It just take a little elbow grease, and the occasional VW van.
This mini museum on wheels is a functional shrine, chapel, and brilliantly executed kitsch masterpiece (available for events upon request!).
