Misuse of chemicals...
PRH just rolled in from his trip to NYC. He was delivering his work for a show that opens at Caelum Gallery on Tuesday, February 5th (be sure to stop by if you're in the neighborhood). While he was visiting the city he went to Cinders, my very favorite gallery in Williamsburg, and picked up some awesome zines. One of the last times we were there we saw work by artist Allyson Mellberg. Her work is so amazing...it's odd, funny, and a little bit gross at times (a combination of characteristics that I love). According to the write-up at Cinders: "Allyson Mellberg resides in Charlottsville, VA where she makes drawings, paintings, silk screens, and etchings of beautifully deformed and yet playful characters who carry a proud demeanor in their abnormalities. Furry creatures climb on the heads of women and wrap their tails around mustachioed boys. Luckily for the rest of us she shares her work through art shows, zines, prints, and illustration work. Her work is inspired by the daily misuse of chemicals in our society and in keeping with her awarness uses non-toxic and often homemade materials." Take a look here to see more of her work, along with some other great art.
