Not on all Fours, this is on Parade,
This review is from: Everything That Creeps (Hardcover)
A book composed pimarily of pictures of diaromas, taking the surrealistic ethic out of the 2D picture and placing it into a 3d frame. Has a weird feminine twist to worlds of night time subconscious reveries. Bodies of creatures arising from the deep trenches of the Pacific, provided with legs and arms inhabiting the worlds we all twist and shout within. Explores, for me, the angst of self harm and anorexia in a journey into childhood memories as the artist, similar to Ray Caesar taps into a life force composes of the building blocks of childhood and then reworked the energy to depict the real world built on the bricks.
Suffused with a carnival atmosphere, the diaromas work their magic, taking a cue from the Day of the Dead Mexicana they head into the Black Forests of Europe to bring out the Grimm fairy tales of yesteryear and instead of playing the victim, the characters reap their rewards.
The ideas are basic but as with all the best art, the imagination which composed it is highly complex.
