Vanessa Ramirez “Under the Cold Blue Sky”
a new collection of cuddly monsters and hungry beasts, the artist’s work combines chunky and expressive characters with meticulously labor intensive textures.
Brandt Peters “Phantasmenagerie II”
a continuation of his ongoing sculpture series, this new feature exhibition introduces a few new characters into his vintage cartoon underworld.
Brandt Peters is a self-taught illustrator and designer whose work has garnered international attention from the fine art gallery circuit. His paintings explore the eras of ancient cartoons, Victorian toys and pre-WWI vintage ‘Pop’ ephemera; all fodder from being raised by a family of artists and antique collectors. A world composed of creepy sideshow icons, deviant Animalia, and “masked” glorified cartoon alter egos, these characters and cultures serve as the very antitheses of what is traditionally deemed innocent and socially acceptable.
Kathie Olivas “Limbo”
A new series of small mixed media works inspired by the anxiety of the unknown and the pleasures of taking time to enjoy the cosmic waiting room.
Her work has explored society’s insatiable desire to assign ‘cuteness’ and our discomfort with the unknown. A dark blend of early American portraiture set in post apocalyptic times, her paintings and sculptures are a satirical look at how fear affects our sense of reality. Her wide eyed children and anthropomorphic creatures are meant to evoke a nostalgic reaction that reflects isolation and uncertainty, yet they also act as empowered alter egos.
