November 2013 brings two new solo exhibits to Stranger Factory from Gary Ham and Brandon “Ragnar” Johnson.
Both exhibits run November 1st – December 1st, with an opening reception on Friday, November 1st from 6 – 9 PM.
“Engine” brings us original work by Brandon “Ragnar” Johnson, a renowned artist and illustrator. Usually known for his clean and minimalist illustration style, this new body of work by Ragnar introduces his fans to a grittier, more organic series of paintings. Leaning visually on a 1960s / Film Noir vibe, “Engine” is a bold reminder of everything we love about mid-century art and design.
“Sentimentrees” by Gary Ham is based around the personification of his own sentimental childhood memories. If the things we loved as a child could walk and talk, what would their childhood be like? As children, we saw our treehouse as a trusted friend and sanctuary; as adults we see a wood box nailed into tree branches. “Sentimentrees” brings us back to seeing our playthings through the optimism and unconditional love of our youth.
