Honored to be included in the annual “The 13th Hour” group show with such a talented roster!
The annual “The 13th Hour” show was last night at Last Rites Gallery, (oops, meant to get this out earlier!) and looked like a mega success. My piece was a direct tribute to the passing of H.R. Giger and am honored it got to hang in Last Rites, as I understand the owner, Paul Booth was a close personal friend of Giger and deeply crushed by his loss. It was a tough piece to make, as the impact of Giger’s passing was heavier than I thought. I’ve always been a fan of his work, and I guess I didn’t realize quite how much until he passed. I tried to pay homage to his works and yet still try to keep my own feel about the piece, and I think it succeeded. I am extremely pleased with the custom sculpted frame for this exact reason. Cheers to everyone who made it out to the show, hopefully you can make it out again next month where I will have my show, “Overgrowth.” Enjoy!
