A lot has happened since the last time I sat down to blog! I have moved back to my hometown of Asheville, NC, found a house with my fiancée, and gotten into two galleries downtown (and that’s just the very shortest version!).
I figured it was far past time that I start putting up some fresh posts, as I have been selling art with this web address on it since July. Oh ADD, is there any foolish thing that you won’t help me to do at an agonizingly slow pace?
I am excited to announce that I have put up a show of Halloween/monster/eerie themed art up at Woolworth Walk, showing from now until the end of the month. The show is called “Monsters In My Closet”.
Here is the artist’s statement for the show:
I am and artist and illustrator who has recently moved back to my hometown of Asheville after living in New Orleans, California’s Bay Area, and Atlanta.
Ever since I was a child, I have been interested in the eerie and the bizarre. I used to get nightmares after repeatedly watching classic horror movies on Shock Theater on Saturday afternoons, despite being forbidden to do so (because my parents knew just where those nightmares were coming from). I loved reading ghost stories, and visiting places like the old Witchcraft Museum in Gatlinburg, Tennessee. I also loved spooky comic books, and was particularly impressed by Ed Roth’s monsters in hot rods, although I didn’t know who did them until much later.
All of those influences collide in Monsters In My Closet, my Halloween art show. The title refers both to the legendary monsters in every kid’s closet, as well as the fact that these pieces rarely see the light of day.
Here are some pictures of the exhibition:
Here are a few sample pieces:
Come check it out! Woolworth Walk has the larger show, but there are also some pieces at Zapow! Gallery.
