So, I was lucky enough to be able to attend the Senior Art Show at West Chester University with my friend Bee. Apparently, horror, humor and fairy tales are alive and well in the next generation of artists. By the time I left the show, I wanted to be in an enchanted forest somewhere, talking to the animals and looking for spooky things.
This series by Dianna Vongphachanh is pretty outrageous. I absolutely love how the pieces still have a sense of motion to them.
Rose Haywood’s graphic designs were great, but it was her showcasing of the brilliant Saul Williams that hooked me.
Liana Tutrone’s Vampire Energy poster is both cheeky and creepy.
Loved seeing the darker side of fairy tales, whether implied or explicit.
Brandon Spector’s creatures were made out of recycled material like plastic bags and shredded paper. Utterly fucking cool, the epitome of creation. So inspiring. I imagine them to be the guardians of some hidden kingdom.
Is it just me, or does Red Riding Hood’s cape look a tad…phallic?
And finally, we end our fantastical journey with a heaping plateful of…mancakes!
Mmmm…mancakes. Talk about a fairy tale ending!
