Stranger Factory is proud to present ODDysseys, for the month of June, with new work from Stan Manoukian, Seymour, Maryanna Hoggatt, and Andrew Bell.
Stan Manoukian is an internationally recognized member of the Circus Posterus Collective, from Paris, France, known for his comic illustration, film and commercial story development, toy design and monster creation. With approximately 15 original sculptures, one large (40″ x 30″) original drawing, and several smaller drawings, Manoukian will be expanding his realm of strange and unknown creatures for the ODDysseys exhibition.
Australian based Peter Kelk produces artwork un…der the pseudonym Seymour and is known for his vibrantly eerie sculptures and intricate ink and giclee prints. For ODDysseys, Seymour’s creations will embody a sense of exploration and adventure and we will see a sculpt edition of ten, each one in an original colorway, as well as at least two larger, original 3-D figures.
Maryanna Hoggatt is a freelance artist in the Pacific Northwest and her impressive client roster has included Nike, Amazon, and Microsoft, though she finds herself most at home when working on her own personal creations. Through illustration and sculpting, Hoggatt has created Animal Battle, a world in which animals express the human emotions involved in overcoming fears and doubts in order to bring to life their hopes and dreams. In keeping with her ongoing narrative, Hoggatt will be providing four original sculpts, wood/resin wall reliefs, as well as prints and smaller resin figures for the ODDysseys exhibition.
For NY artist, Andrew Bell, ODDysseys is an opportunity to expand upon the theme of transmuted plant life, or “Trans-Plants.” We can expect to see several ink drawings, original paintings, as well small and medium resin sculpts complete with Bell’s signature style that blends a sense of humor with serious undertones.
The opening reception is Friday, June 5th from 6 – 9 pm at Stranger Factory. Some of the artists will be in attendance. The ODDysseys exhibition will run through June 28th.
