02.01.13 – Empty World @ Stranger Factory

DrilOne’s exhibition, “Empty World“, will showcase Dril’s signature style of distress and decay as he tackles his interpretation of a post-apocalyptic landscape. Utilizing his familiar forms of 3D signage, paintings, original sculpts, customized vinyl toys, and other mixed-medium assemblages, DrilOne offers up a glimpse of his view of a world gone dead.

Jason Limon’s exhibition, “Foretell“, is based on visions that can’t be seen by living human eyes. The paintings and ideas will portray our planet after we humans no longer live, but only remnants of us exist. Jason questions what will grow from us and around us. New creatures breath life into what we were and grow from what we left. Jason’s paintings will offer a glimpse of what’s to come through the foretelling eyes of afterlife.

Leecifer’s “Long Dogs“, presents the artist’s unique vision of the world unnoticed as customized vinyl toys, original sculpts, and paintings. Encountered as seemingly ordinary plants and animals hinting at an impossible intellect or ancient wisdom. Seen from the corner of your eye, a flash of golden scales is revealed to be but a Tabby’s fur; a serpentine shadow solidifies into one from a dachshund, improbable wings on a frog. Sometimes the glimpse becomes the knowing smile of a Boston Bulldog that, in passing, might have had catfish whiskers, or maybe even a turtle with too many heads. Or the sense that, even in times of harshest trial, there is a powerful presence shepherding and guiding you. This is the gift of a long dog. Possible dragons and unrecognized conduits of wonder and magic, hiding in plain sight.
