Today we have one of my old lowbrow style pop surrealism favorites, Joe Vaux.

I used to have dreams about the apocalypse, in which the planets realigned and moved close to the earth in strange but gorgeous arrangements and colors. Bill Higgins’s series of exploratory paintings reminds me of these dreams.
It’s interesting to think about just how much we take the alignment of the incomprehensibly majestic cosmos for granted. We often don’t notice the sun, moon or stars at all…but I always make a point to look up and marvel just a bit.
It’s been such a long time since I’ve seen her work in person, but it’s really a sight to behold.
Her paintings (often very large scale) transport you into a psychedelic wonderland of dark, sickly sweet delights.
Be sure to catch the show if you can!
