This is the wall the visitor sees when they first walk in.

This wall contains a clumping together of some of my religious/Social Commentary  themes.

"The Church in the last Days" reinforces the contemporary theme of "Saint Surveillance". Between them are woodcuts that are an extension/overflow of the Surveillance piece.

 



looking to the left is the title of the show and 'the Conversation" amidst two tiki-themed pieces...Two different storylines,but connected by the element of fantasy.

 


Here's a backaway view of that wall....

 


to the left of the Saint Surveillance piece is the main hallway of the magoski Art Colony. We were able to design the show so that it starts in the front and leads the viewer down the hall into the mass of paintings . See how your eye is led to the Rebel Angels piece? EXACTLY!

 


Here is the first part of the hallway pieces.. These are Tiki pieces.. Ranging from a childhood Von-Danieken (sp?)  fascination with otherworldly interstellar visits via Sepik River Spirit hooks to a study in relationships with the Bar-themed "the Constant Crier".

 


Move Along! No time to Dawdle! Let's get to the next grouping....

 


Before we enter the main collection of work,there is another wall that echoes the magenta wall in the very front.

Here's the view looking back towards the front.

 


On the main wall we have the Rebel Angels piece and a framed Artist's statement.

Below is the statement,so you can fell like you're actually THERE!

Like it says...such a terrific undertaking cannot be created alone... No man is an island..

A peninsula...an isthmus maybe,but not an island....

Walking past the main piece,two landscapes are revealed..


a little oasis from the the tumult of the War in Heaven around the corner...

Hidden behind the Rebel Angels wall, a Self portrait and some disparate paintings dwell...

Here's a view of one corner...

and here's the other...

if we turn completely around from facing the Waterfall painting,the wall of Classic greek myth will be revealed... Hercules and the nemean Lion,a Siren,and a Tragedy figure.

Added to the mix is an Orpheus...

These pieces lead to the corner area where i have a glass case filled with painted mugs

i had produced with Tiki Farm and the Tikipop catalog with  the page opened to my

"Song of the Pufferfish". a little diorama action....kinda...

Swarming on the walls around the glass case are some woodburns and a few other showcase tiki pieces,including a six foot Cannibal king...

and here is how theis whole area looks from across the way.

Here's a better view of the glass case...

And here's a view from the next room we're going to enter....

on this wall are two early erotic paintings where i attempted to blend architecture and the human form.... Without the forms interacting,it looked like a warmup before a run.. The solution was to place it in the context of a devil's Courtyard...

The blue carries over to this wall with the Elephant's Secret and the Monkeys... Pieces dealing with human relationships via Anthropomorphism...


This picture gives you a little view of how that corner flows....

as we turn the corner to the left,the paintings in this area  are all based on Biblical accounts.

One of the Four living creatures around God's throne and the Trumpets and bowls all share the book of revelation as their source.

To the left od those pieces are a Christ and the Demoniac study and a garden of eden Expulsion woodburn...

Here are how they look all grouped together...

Directly across from the bible area are three tiki pieces,the largest a fantasy narrative involving transporting tribes and cultures via massive wooden ships...

and the final wall,a companion wall is across from the big blue Elephant's Secret painting.

These are a collection of Animal and Fantasy pieces...

And this appears to be the end of our pre-Opening Tour! If there are any paintings you'd like to see closer,Come on down Saturday the 29th at 6pm for the Closing Reception and a more in-depth docent tour ABOUT each painting!

 

And now for the Opening Reception photos....

Some of these are mine,others are taken by Aimee,Rene, Jesse,Adrian,and Al

Which i can give photo credits to under each one,but laziness stops me

I'm just going to hobble them all together without comment

and let you enjoy the crowd and a lil bit of the magic from that night...
