This Friday night, August 12th, at Roq La Rue Gallery in Seattle, my painting "And the Children Shall Inherit the Earth" will be in The Blab Show
curated by Monte Beauchamp. The show revolves around the theme of Krampus. Who is Krampus? In early 19th century European folklore, Krampus was a creepy devilish figure who accompanied St Nicolas during the Christmas season. If you were a good boy or girl, St. Nick gave you gifts, but if you were bad then you got a visit by Krampus who would punish and spank you with his switch and hopefully not carry you away in his sack! I really think we need to bring the Krampus tradition back.
I'm very proud to be part of Blab and a really spectacular group of artists including Nicoletta Ceccoli, Marc Burckhardt, Martin Wittfooth, Jason Holley, Erik Sandberg, Travis Louie, Jana Brike, Dan May, Shag, Ana Bagayan, Laurie Hogin, Derek Nobbs, Andrew S. Arconti, Ryan Heshka, Owen Smith, Brian Despain, Mark Garro, Juliana Swaney, Shag, Andy Kehoe, Alex Kuno, Fred Stonehouse and Yoko D'Holbachie.
The following are a few process pics and close-ups.
