Spreading fear and mayhem in the visual arts.

Lindsey Carr at Imagine Gallery, Suffolk

La Bizarre Singerie by Lindsey Carr - click to enlarge

Judging by her recent blog posts, Lindsey Carr (previously featured) has been preparing for her Suffolk solo show that opens this weekend like only few artists I know and I admire her artistic work ethic greatly.

And for the audience this means a plethora of beautiful new works that combine a Henri Rousseauesque boldness, a Tiffany Bozicesque ornamentality and a Walton Fordesque wilderness and by adding her own heightened sense for impeccable composition and exactitude in execution, Lindsey mixes them all together to create something new.

I couldn't find out any clear information about how long her works will be on show so do check back with the gallery. Details below.

Oh, and à propos Walton Ford, I stumbled upon this video feature on Juxtapoz the other day. It's worth your time.

Opening reception: Sunday, Feb 27, 12 PM onwards

Address: Imagine Gallery, Hall Street, Long Melford, Sudbury, Suffolk, CO10 9JL, UK, tel: +44[0]1787 378786, email: imaginegallery@hotmail.co.uk

Gallery hours: Mon - Sat: 10 AM - 6 PM, Sun: 12 - 4 PM

WurzelArt Gazette March 2010 - Grab A Sammich

Work in progress by Joao Ruas, 2010

Thank you all for the kind birthday wishes and please pardon the radio silence. Our Angelique Houtkamp show was insanely busy and Angelique is now back home in Amsterdam and I can't tell you how relieved I am that she didn't get squeezed to death. Even our glass domes and the baby skulls are still intact - which clearly defies logic if you've seen the crowds at the opening reception. Some originals and the baby skulls are still for sale, so keep your eyes glued to Nelly Duff - I will upload details soonish.

Anyhow, it's March; which means the spring awakening of the beaux arts. Lots and lots and lots to report about. But since I have absolutely no idea where to start, I decided to give you some sneak previews of what my favourite WurzelArtists® have been up to recently.

This is only a small selection, but as you can see, people have been as busy as bees on coke and 2010 is going to be an amazing year for the visual arts, methinks.

Joao has been up to A LOT and it's always fascinating to see all the diverse things he's directing his talents to besides his work for Fables.

JEREMY ENECIO

Meanwhile, does it seem like someone's slowly running out of ideas?! Miss Van releases an overpriced giclee of her 5-year-old Poupées. Hmm...

... and finally, Mme Isabelle Royet-Journoud looks a bit like a customised undead Blythe doll herself in this masterpiece of a self-portrait.

While here at Wurzeltod HQ, I've been mainly standing annoyingly in front of yet even more great art...
