For the past month, we have been bringing you updates, news, and a multitude of images from the upcoming shows by Scott RadkeStephan Webb, and Kathie Olivas. While the last touches of paint dry and the finishing edits on the preview are done, we thought  we’d recap a few of the pieces we covered. Knowing how we operate, you might want to pay attention for some images you may have not seen yet. Just a warning to keep a good eye out. :)

Hopefully this will hold you over until the preview comes out tonight!

A few more Olivas paintings for Scout

We have seen many forms and shapes for Scott Radke‘s “Interface””, and now we have another resplendent creation that is simply jaw dropping. Titled “Pink Clown“, this sitting jester is adorned in an elaborate stripe and swirl burlap cloth design, lending to its rough-edged medieval feel. The trademark sculpted face is amazed and bewildered as it gazes upon a lush and delightfully detailed gold ornamental egg.  The appeal of this piece will stretch many boundaries, and there is still more to come from Scott.

RadkeSkelve1We gave you a teaser earlier on some Skelves Scott Radke is working on for his show at Stranger Factoryand now we are pleased to fully reveal three of them! Scott takes the classic Skelve platform and combines it with his own defined style to create a brand new Skelve look. The Radke Skelves are both familiar and new, but they are undeniably mysterious and charming. And the details – that pointy burlap cap, perfect little painted heart and tiny rivets! Scott will have numerous Skelves available for the show, and so we don’t spoil it, we are only showing you a small sample. These faces grow even more expressive with each look, so study them carefully!

Scott Radke‘s “Interface” opens April 5th at Stranger Factoryand we are still excited to show you what he has in store for all of us.

If you combine our love of signature Radke burlap with antlers(a perennial Stranger Factory favourite), magical things happen! Combined with a classic Radke face that depicts both a sense of innocence and nobility, you have a truly inspiring work of art.

Radke again

What does Scott Radke have in store for “Interface“? Is this a dinosaur, an elf, or gnome…or something else from the realm of Radke? We added some swirly, twirly, icing to the image to help keep a little secret, but whatever it is, it seems like there may be a few of them migrating to New Mexico in April! Keep checking the Circus Posterus blog because we will have the full reveal soon!

Scott Radke is certainly known for his glorious burlap and clay renditions of animals, humans and other hauntingly delicate and earthy things. But the crowning glory of his work – the element that leaps out and keeps you looking(or unable to tear your eyes away) – are the beautiful and poignantly expressive faces on his sculpts.

The faces Scott Radke creates are alternately sorrowful, longing, coy, anxious, or an indeterminate mix of all – or none – of the above. In fact, the faces his burlap minions wear may even change, almost imperceptibly, based on how the light hits, the angle. of viewing…and maybe just how you’re feeling that day.

We can’t wait to show you more from Radke’s stellar show in April(but we will). Check back often to see what this wizard has up his sleeve!

WhatISthis

What is Scott Radke working on for “Interface“?

A little tail, stubby arms, and a dunce cap…oh my!! And…what is that face? I will confirm that it is not Tobi’s mask from Naruto, but we did purposely obscure the image so you can use your imagination. We like keeping one or two secrets over here. If you happen to figure it out yourself, we might have a surprise in store for you. We will reveal more and more in the weeks to come(and more Radke loveliness), so keep checking back!
