Art in the Crypt - Electric Soiree in the Wake of Cosmic Bedlam

Saturday marked the eve of my first London exhibition. Just one day after a mind-zapping blood moon eclipse, eight artists gathered in the winding crypt at St Pancras to share their work in a spectrally atmospheric environment.

In addition to this being my first London show, this was the first time in the years I've been developing Alien Botany, that I've exhibited it as one body of work. The setting couldn't have been better, with centuries-old brick and moulting paint subtly complementing the shades of cream and red in my pieces.

The crypt has a sense of silence, too, that seemed to stick around even when it filled with echoing voices and laughter. Despite the night's electric atmosphere, I felt my work was truly seen.

This was a uniquely gratifying way to present this series visually: within three airy archways in the crypt's central row, which allowed viewers to get close and take time. That feeling of silence let me describe what I've been working on without having to raise my voice too much, or to contend for the listener's focus.

It was a true delight to be able to introduce my work in Europe in this manner, and to be able to have so many stimulating conversations all in one night. My hat's off to The Hellfire Club, who sponsored the event, for bringing everything and everyone together amidst significant cosmic activity - it was an objectively unforgettable evening, as well as a personal milestone for me.

With that, I'm packing a suitcase and setting off on a birthday escapade to the British wilderness for a reset and a much-needed digital detox. A massive thanks to everyone who came to the exhibit!

My First London Exhibition

Please join me in the depths of the historic Saint Pancras crypt on July 28th, where Alien Botany is part of an eight-artist exhibition. It's my first time showing in London, my new home, and the reception happens to be three days before my birthday, so it feels extra momentous. I will be in attendance, and both prints and original art will be available for purchase.

This one-night showcase will feature the work of artists working with diverse and often subversive esoteric currents, alchemical processes, alien parasites, conjured spirits, and the manifestation of the forces of light and darkness.

I hope your curiosity is piqued!

Saturday 28th July 2018 from 7pm

When You Gaze Into The Bern, The Bern Gazes Back

Last month I wrote about my Bernie Stardust drawing's adventures with The Art of a Political Revolution exhibition. This extraordinary show has continued its travels and grew until it ended up in New York, where it opened on Saturday to a crowd and some surprise guests: Bernie Sanders, fresh from his trip to the Vatican, his wife Jane, and a few other family members.

Imagine my delight when I found out that Ann J Lewis, a fellow exhibiting artist, happened to get this video at the exact moment of Bernie and his granddaughters looking at my drawing:

Participating in this exhibition has been such a gratifying experience already, and this managed to elevate it even further. As an artist who primarily works in the surreal and fantasy realms, I'm proud and happy to have been there from the start, drawing the one candidate who's managed to add a little magic and a lot of hope to American politics. 

Today is the last day in New York, so if you're on the East Coast, I hope you're able to drop by. Details here.
