The show will run from September 13th – Oct 13th. Gallery hours are on Sunday from 1-6pm or by appointment. Please contact the gallery at email@example.com.
Splonk is a show about the cartoon. The work ranges from the flat and abstract to the more lyrical and uncanny. All of the work engages with the sensibility of the cartoon; abbreviated and elegant depictions that are both familiar and unfamiliar. The artists in the show make work that is visually inviting, but also disrupts, in some way, what we think we know about space, form, color, line, object. There are connections to Japanese woodblock prints, Picasso, animation, and graphic novels to name a few. Filtered through a contemporary lens, the pieces are less grounded, stranger and maybe tinged with a new millennium anxiety. Enjoy!
