Alrighty folks … you’ve seen the teasers, you’ve read of the ass-kicking insanity that is currently unfolding in Albuquerque and Austin … now here is some more candy for the eyeballs and the ‘officially official’ details from the man himself, Mr. Brandt Peters:
Stranger Factory art space is proud to present “TRIGGER” a two-person exhibition by artists Brandt Peters and Clay Ferguson (aka FERG). Both artists explore the ideas and personification of a trigger… that initiator that precipitates a reaction whether literally or metaphorically, whether on behalf of destruction or protection… What’s the target?
Hot damn. TRIGGER is set to tyrannize Stranger Factory Jan. 6th with a myriad of 2- and 3-dimensional works. For the first time we’ll get to see these two reinterpret each other’s toys and construct some of the most menacing customs to date. More insight to emerge with the artist profiles, so keep checking back!
TRIGGER runs through Jan. 30th, 2012, with an opening reception from 6pm to 9pm. Both artists will be in attendance.
Scott Radke is one of those artists whose photos of his sculptures are just as stunning as the works, themselves. And fortunately for us, he’s offering up four of his more notable shots as limited-edition fine art prints! Printed on Epson Ultra Premium Matte paper using Claria high-definition inks, each image is 10” x 10” with a one-inch white border. Prints come signed and bagged and are available for $30 each here.
FERG is certainly bringin’ the heat with yet another Squadt custom reveal: Trouble Fucker, a custom Trouble Boy payin’ homage to the Die Fuckers before him. Pimped out in a printed white tee, jacket and silenced MAC 10, this fella means bidnazz!!
The CP video crew returns with the first installment of Stranger Factory’s annual holiday group exhibition! Experience the event vicariously through Kyle and Amie as they capture all the strangeness and charm of the gallery’s first Winter Salon. Show’s on ‘til Jan. 3rd, 2012.
How befitting that Ms. Amanda Louise should call her latest custom ‘Snowflake,’ … I’m hard-pressed trying to think of soft sculptures quite as unique and wondrous as the critters we’ve all come to love.
‘Snowflake’ is part of Stranger Factory’sWinter Salon exhibition and, given that it’s just now making an appearance, I think it’s safe for us to assume it will be in tomorrow’s preview ;)
Well get a load of this: as Squadt fans collectively rejoice over the notion of FERG customizing a posse of Trouble Boys, he double-ups the ante by busting out metal-infused paints. Seriously. We’re talkin’ real metal that’s worked into paint through a ‘true-metal deposition paint process.’
What this means: the skull on this guy shimmers like the fender on Frank Kozik’s Charger. What this means for you and I: a damn beautiful custom to magpie next month. More soon.
