The show is FREE and open to the public THIS Saturday night! I'll see you there with a dozen works, some fan favorites along with never before exhibited work. Here's your taste of some of them...
|Inks on Bristol / 2009|
With the theme of "Retro TV Night," many of my Cult of Personality series' works come to mind including my portrait of Alfred Hitchcock. This illustration borrows it's name from one of the director's famous quotes, "A man cannot live by murder alone." I grew up with my dad glued to his Nick at Night, which ran Alfred Hitchcock Presents. The macabre stories and Hitchcock's dry but manic sense of humor were a stable of television in my youth. The art I created features scenes from Hitchcock's films. Can you name them all?
|Inks on Bristol / 2008|
I grew up watching wrestling and my folks had one of those ancient huge satellite dishes which looked like you were communicating with the beyond to anyone who drove by the place. We'd find obscure channels, especially foreign language ones and watch programs like Lucha Libre Mexican wrestling. This Topsy-Turvy work is called "Luchadores of the Squared-Circle."
See these and many more works at this FREE exhibit Saturday night, March 26th starting at 7PM!
