I'm beyond excited to be part of The Thing 35th anniversary exhibit at Creature Features!
My piece is an anatomical Kennel-Thing from John Carpenter’s 1982 version of “The Thing”, which happens to be one of my best-loved scary classics. The Kennel-Thing puppet, which was created by SFX master, Stan Winston, combines two of my favorite things: dogs and body horror. Though the film is filled with great imagery, the scene it’s featured in has always resonated with me the most.
This exhibit showcases original work from over 100 artists all over the world, paying tribute to Carpenter's chilling vision. There will also be a spectacular display of original props and memorabilia from both the 1951 version and the 1982 remake, gathered exclusively for this event, plus a sneak peek at Printed in Blood, Inc's upcoming THE THING Artbook showcasing over 400-pages of original tribute art.
The opening reception is Saturday, April 8th from 6pm - 9pm at 2904 W Magnolia Blvd, Burbank, California 91505. The show will run through Sunday, April 16th during regular gallery hours.
