Naoto Hattori: Nothing But Perception

Posted in art, exhibits with tags , on April 13, 2014 by shewalkssoftly

Naoto Hattori has a new show at the Dorothy Circus Gallery.


As I struggle to think of fitting descriptions for his work, the word “cyborganic” comes to mind. It’s not a real word. I made it up. But I’m sticking with it.

Though not quite for the faint of heart, the group show going on at Modern Eden Gallery right now is definitely worth checking out for those who can attend.


Your can tour the online gallery of multimedia projects…so hideous…so hard to look away.

A favorite of mine: the string bat.

Has anyone gone?

I had to share this pun-tastic idea for a group are show.


Toy Art Gallery is proud to present Scott Tolleson’s DEADBEET Custom Group Show! The Deadbeet is 6” of soft vinyl veggie mischief, and we’ve invited 50 of the toy scene’s brightest and best toy artists customizers to tame this ragged root.


If anyone makes it to this, let me know how it is!

Beth Cavener Stitcher: The Four Humors

Posted in exhibits, installations, sculpture with tags , , on July 30, 2012 by shewalkssoftly

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.

Sanguine – Too much blood – passionate, bold, impulsive

Choleric – Too much yellow bile – irritable, hostile, bitter

Melancholic – Too much black bile – depressed, anxious, moody

Phlegmatic – Too much phlegm – passive, introverted, rational

This must have been a powerful exhibit to see in person.
