Angela Singer, Suzanne Moxhay, Caitlin Hackett, Lindsey Carr et al. at Strychnin, Berlin

by Suzanne on May 4th, 2011


Vila of the Forest by Angela Singer, taxidermy deer, mixed media, crystals, ceramic flower leaves, 2011 - click to enlarge

One more for Berlin folks: Next Friday, a beautiful forest-themed show will be opening at Strychnin Gallery.

From the press release:

"In concordance with the United Nation's International Year of Forests, Strychnin Gallery presents 'The Enchanted Forest' an international charity group show curated by Yasha Young and Giovanni Cervi that is dedicated to the forests and their inhabitants all over the world.

The show should remind people of the drastic damage that is constantly done to our forests as well as their beauty, uniqueness and importance.

Many lovingly and elaborately crafted sculptures as well as paintings and photographs by over 30 international artists will display both the desolation of deforestation and the forest‘s magic and liveliness that we have to save.

10 percent of the price of every sold artwork will be donated to a project of the WWF!"


Feralis by Suzanne Moxhay, 2010 - click to enlarge

Exhibiting artists include: Mia Araujo, Caitlin Hackett (below), Tom Bagshaw, Lindsey Carr (bottom), Daniel van Nes, Lisa Black, Lost Fish, Angela Singer (top), Elmer Presslee, Suzanne Moxhay (above), and many more.


Insatiable by Caitlin Hackett, ballpoint pen, micron pen, ebony pencil, coloured pencil and water colour on paper - click to enlarge

What impresses me particularly about the line-up is the huge number of female artists including great young talents like Lindsey Carr (below) whose deep love and fascination for biology and painting are very visible in her extraordinary and forever growing symbiotic menagerie.

ArtNerd Membership Scheme

by Suzanne on April 22nd, 2011

"For each new sponsor, a fallen angel will get a puppy."

- BibliOdyssey

UPDATE APRIL 25, 6.30 PM, GMT: Artist and long-time Wurzeltod® favourite Derek Nobbs has confirmed to design our membership cards! Please click here for press we've received and ways to spread this message. Thank you all! x

As announced back in February, I have now finalised the details on the ArtNerd membership scheme to support the Wurzeltod® gallery venture.

Memberships are vaild for 2 years from the date of subscription and there are 5 main membership categories: Junior ArtNerd, ArtNerd, ArtNerd Pro, Super ArtNerd and Pathological ArtNerd. Just like in real life.

Junior is for those who are impoverished themselves but don't want to miss out on a membership card and flyers, ArtNerd is the basic account that comes with a little print, ArtNerd Pro is very much like a MacBook Pro with lots of interactive extras, the Super ArtNerd is the superhero of it all with special powers to extend opening hours etc. and the Pathological ArtNerd REALLY needs medical help because he'll get so many benefits it should be illegal.

You can find out more about the rewards each category offers you by clicking on the little question mark next to it or by scrolling down to the bottom.

I will get back to every submission within 24 hours.

With your support, what you've seen and appreciated online here for a decade can become a brick-and-mortar reality. You rule.

PRESS

BibliOdyssey:

"Please become a member of ArtNerd and help the esteemed Suzanne of Wurzeltod get her unique gallery off the ground. For each new sponsor, a fallen angel will get a puppy."

• Lindsey Carr: New Exhibition Space

"The quite wonderful Suzanne G who runs the art blog Wurzeltod is starting up a new exhibition space called ArtNerd in Brick Lane, London. I can't tell you how excited I am to hear this. She has a wonderfully unique and incisive voice as well as journalistic rigor which is sometimes entirely lacking on art blogs.

She covers a lot of artists I would never have heard of elsewhere and it's not lazy writing either. It's gloriously literary and it's pretty obvious she has an encyclopeadic knowledge of art history. She may be the only person i've read who has a critical edge to her coverage of the new underground/pop-surrealist/new contemporary arts.

In order to help fund this excellent space she is offering a range of membership options from £15 upwards. They last for two years and come with some great perks.

I suggest if you live anywhere in Britain and want to see an art space with a difference you sign yerself up. I am offically an ArtNerd and will wear my badge with pride. If you can't afford to sign up then I heartily recommend Wurzeltod as a source of visual wonder."

• Misanthropop: Art-Nerd Gallery Needs Your Help

"Suzanne has been giving exposure to little-known and extremely talented artists for over a decade.

To help get this wonderful endeavor off the ground, she has started offering several different paid gallery memberships that grant a slew of benefits and exclusive rights and materials. As a member, you’d be a part of Art-Nerd itself.

Suzanne does an awful lot for starving artists and art lovers alike, while asking for very little in return. Help her make the jump from the web to establish an excellent gallery in the fleshworld. These kinds of things need its patrons to thrive. It’s worth it."

• Elspeth McIntosh, artist:

"I have been a fan of Suzanne Gerber's Wurzeltod for many years now. So much inspiration has come from the website to fuel my art, particularly during my undergrad in fine art - without which, my aesthetic and same bad taste would never be the same. Suzanne is now venturing to open a gallery in London with the memberships contributing to the setup of the space - with maaaany benefits to be had. Sincerely brilliant!"

Mario Kaoru Mevy, musician:

"Discovering Suzanne Gerber's blog 2 years ago gave me an incredible creative boost, I discovered so much it's somehow too much for my mind to handle. She is without doubt the most awesome online curator! That will also translate to the "real world" if her gallery project takes off. She is currently looking for supporters for it to work; I'll be a subscriber. Naturally."

Lindsey Carr at Imagine Gallery, Suffolk

by Suzanne on February 22nd, 2011


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

Next up is Lindsey Carr who’s come a bloody long way, if I may say so. These new “studies”, as you humbly call them, are awe-inspiring, Lindsey!

WHAT OTHERS SAY

ForteanTimes, the magazine of strange phenomena:

"Mme Wurzeltod, who runs a very fine cabinet of curiosities, has put together a gallery of taxidermy, cryptozoology and animal curiosa that'll have you gawping for hours on end. Here 'tis."

Robert Marbury, Minnesota Association of Rogue Taxidermists:

"Wurzeltod has been a really wonderful force in turning people onto great artwork."

... and...

"The beautiful, intelligent and talented Suzanne G. has been at it again. Besides bringing talented artists together, she has now made an incredible Cabinet of Wonder featuring talented artists and animals forms. [...] We remain in awe."

Joanna Ebenstein, Morbid Anatomy:

"Wonderful compendium exploring the ways in which taxidermy has been used as a form of creative expression, past and present, on the excellent Wurzeltod blog. Click here."

Daniel Blue of Motopony for Lost At E Minor, art blog:

"Whenever I need a dark art fix, I find my fingers automatically typing Wurzeltod into my browser. Suzanne Gerber claims to be an art nerd from London, but her ability to discover and distribute the works of these macabre and luscious artists borders on the uncanny.

I find myself in cathartic mortal conflict as I survey and am enveloped in the layers of soft laced velvet and pouty lips that I know hide those jagged daggers and the bicuspid mastication of my very soul. A vast and thrilling blog that tromps through the art world that the likes of JUXTAPOZ and Giant Robot can only hint at. Hats (and heads) off to you, Wurzeltod."

Laurie Lipton, my mum:

"GENIUS!!! And sick as all fuck. We are practically twins."

Derek Nobbs, artist:

"Suzanne is like an art superhero."

Ruth Marten, artist:

"I think nerd is too passive a term; how about high priestess?"

Maika Keuben, of Liquidnight:

"Thank goodness for Suzanne, her fantastic taste, her enviable ability to express herself, and her desire and drive to share with the rest of us. I mean that with all my corroded little heart."

John Brownlee, blogger:

"Suzanne is the razor sharp aesthetic who introduced me to Ray Caesar, by dint of her amazing blog template. It cemented her as a minor priestess of aesthetics to me. I rarely have the opportunity to link her blog, but I read her religiously, and she's one of the few bloggers out there whose personal life I find myself giving a serious damn about."

Coilhouse, blog collective:

"Her blog compendium, Wurzeltod, is one of my absolute favorite nooks on the net. [...] You’ll laugh, you’ll cry… occasionally you’ll gag. It’s bliss.

So go for the gas masks, stay for the marzipan, and tell her Coilhouse sent ye."

Josh G, ArtWire founder:

"Wurzeltod is one of the best art sites out there, and I'm not the only one who thinks that."

Jean Poole, Skynoise:

"Suzanne G.: Squirrels, squids, and not for the squeamish. Victorian era delicacies slipped into a macabre sci-fi blender. A browse of the archives will reveal cuteness and blood in equal measure, an animal kingdom perverted, mechanical oddities, regular snapshots of gorgeous contemporary art, and ultimately, the very quirky yet refined tastes of Suzanne G. [...] Adorable collections of the whimsical, esoteric and enchanting. Double plus good."

Ashley Benigno, of Notes From Somewhere Bizarre:

"I have followed Suzanne's blog - with her encyclopedic knowledge of art and taxidermic sense of humor - for aeons now."

Nicolas Mieville, of Erebos:

"Suzanne should be inscribed on the World Heritage List."

Ralf Schuetz, UrbanAllyance:

"Wurzeltod is definitely one of the most refreshing and coolest artblogs I've come across so far."

Ex Nihil Nihilo, blogger:

"The excellently written Wurzeltod is my number one source for art news. Thank you very much for your invaluable work, Suzanne!"

Joe Berardi:

"Wurzeltod is a walking Bunuel film."

Nicholas Kahn, of Kahn & Selesnick:

"We have always loved this wonderful blog. A cut above the lower bloggy depths."

Lindsey Carr, artist:

"Suzanne has a wonderfully unique and incisive voice as well as journalistic rigor which is sometimes entirely lacking on art blogs. [...] She covers a lot of artists I would never have heard of elsewhere and it's not lazy writing either. It's gloriously literary and it's pretty obvious she has an encyclopeadic knowledge of art history. She may be the only person I've read who has a critical edge to her coverage of the new underground/pop-surrealist/new contemporary arts."

Jared Joslin, artist:

"Suzanne is a peach with fantastic tastes and a stunning list of artist’s websites. I adore her and the time she devotes to her site."

Darla Teagarden, artist:

"The best art nerds gallery and blog on the planet!"

Stacey Ransom, production and set designer:

"Suzanne, the world needs more you."

Mia Mäkilä, artist:

"Wurzelblog is the best art blog ever! I've followed it since 2003; I love Suzanne's sense of weird humour and her taste in art. She is a blogger's blogger. Like a painter's painter."

Beth Bajema, artist behind Insects & Angels:

"Suzanne is one of my favorite net peoples, having offered for quite some time now a blog full of the best collections of pretty and spooky things you’d probably find in an attic or scary old lady’s mantel. She is one of the lovely people featured in the first Insects & Angels. This is a wee portrait I did of her. The original image and the dolls come from her own photography. Visit her site: Wurzeltod."

Elspeth McIntosh, artist:

"I have been a fan of Suzanne Gerber's Wurzeltod for many years now. So much inspiration has come from the website to fuel my art [....] sincerely brilliant!"

Amy Crehore, artist:

"Suzanne G. keeps us informed about unusual, fragile, decadent, beautiful, historical, intellectual and freaky happenings around the globe. [...] For someone with BAD taste she has an awfully nice nose for sniffing the good things out."

Kris Knight, artist and curator:

“I love Suzanne's site. She has great taste in the dark, the sweet and the historical.”

Claudia Drake, artist:

“Wurzeltod is... an eternal inspiration.”

Zaelia Bishop, artist of the Wurzeltod™ Ex Voto:

"Suzanne's blog is simply fantastic - a drawer full of incredible things and secrets."

Fiona Dalwood, collage artist and dollmaker:

"I always find myself trawling Suzanne's links for interesting stuff. She does have quite the eyeballs of taste."

Laurie Hogin, artist:

"Aggressive vulgarity, bad taste: A revolutionary emotional state the world needs now more than ever!"

Nicoletta Ceccoli, artist:

"I discovered a lot of beautiful nightmares through Wurzeltod, thank you for your blog of treasures!"

Susan Jamison, artist:

"Thanks so much for all your work on the fabulous Wurzeltod. I am a huge fan!"

Robert Steven Connett, artist of "Vomitus Maximus":

"The delightfully intelligent and lovely Miss Wurzel Tod - A superbly crafted site which speaks volumes concerning life seen through the eyes of its authoress.

Spend some time with Miss Tod, you will come away changed for the better."

Mark Jenkins, artist behind the mysterious TapeMen:

"This is a great site for artists and Suzanne the administrator is easily one of the freshest people on the planet. Also check out the erotica section of her forum that includes Thee Fishy Tentacle Thread ov Doom."

Mario Kaoru Mevy, musician:

"Discovering Suzanne Gerber's blog 2 years ago gave me an incredible creative boost, I discovered so much it's somehow too much for my mind to handle. She is without doubt the most awesome online curator!"

Nicky Peacock:

"An evil genius."

Frances, blogger:

"Suzanne's blog is like a magazine you always wish wasn't being read by someone else in your favourite café, and it's a colossal festival of hyperlinks."

Meredith Yayanos, thereminist & muse:

"Madame Wurzeltod's website is like a shiny brass key to some enchanted garden... I always discover the most delightful things from her. [...] Mlle. Wurzel Tod knows things. Go visit."

Tracy Lynette Mary Magdelene Browning Brock, the woman with the most incredible name:

"I love Miss Wurzel Tod's webpage. I can't explain why. Think Tim Burton's Nightmare Before Christmas if filmed by a Victorian mortician who'd just read the Baudelaire translation of The Murder in the Rue Morgue. Very delicate lacy dead things. Only... better. What are you listening to me for? Go see the page!"

Greg, the mysterious linkless person:

"If I ever stop long enough to have kids to read stories to, I am adding Miss Wurzel Tod as a character into the Mad Tea Party."

Damien DeBarra, keeper of small furry things in jars:

"The link led me to an obscure back-water of the European internet. Some wacko, nutjob and her barmy gothic Victoriana. I chuckled. Almost immediately I liked it. Sepia-tinted and crawling with humour, it reminded me of those old episodes of Bagpuss: On the surface, drawn from a palette of dreary Victorian misery, but, in reality, shot through with the most freakish and surreal humour. This was similiar but better."

... and...

"Suzanne is the coolest thing to come out of Switzerland since the Geneva Convention. And the Alps."

Mike Mitchell, 3-year-old web prodigy:

"SUZI IS RELI KWL N HAS SKIN COLOR OF CREEM CHEESE I WUNDA IF SHE SMELS LYK IT 2 (I HOEP SHE DUS)."

Mlle Pereastee, stumbler:

"Une boîte à bonbons, un coffre au trésor, un cabinet de curiosités, une avalanche de liens comme autant d'horizons étranges et acidulés. A ne pas manquer donc; il est rare qu'un seul site ouvre autant de portes vers ce qui est beau, inquiétant, curieux et fascinant. Le mauvais goût de Miss W. Tod est absolument délectable."

VampirGruft, portal for happy gothlings with happy problems:

"Miss Wurzeltods Kreatives Chaos - Ich liebe Skurriles und nie Dagewesenes... Kunst also. Hier erwartet Euch ein morbider Quell, eine skurrile Augenweide, ein chaotisches Konglomerat mit viel Humor und Selbstironie.

Sehr inspirierend und grafisch|optisch immer wieder eine Reise wert..."

Frau Feli, blogger:

"Madame Wurzeltod [präsentiert] eine faszinierende Mischung aus skurrilem Humor, konsequenter Graphik und sagenhaften Fotografien, um mal mit Adjektiven um sich zu werfen."

Braintank, blogger:

"Eigentlich habe ich ja lange suchen müssen, bis ich eine wirklich romantische, zynische, faszinierende, melancholische und fotogene Web-Site gefunden habe. Hier ist sie jetzt: Wurzeltod."
