Rest For The Wicked: New Works by Ferris PlockJuxtapoz // Sunday, 25 Jul 2010
San Francisco-based artist, Ferris Plock is finally giving some Rest For The Wicked. Well, at least through his new paintings, which he will unveil at The Shooting Gallery this August.
Highly inspired by bedtime stories and comic book consumption as a child, Plock's resulting nostalgia drives the creation of his art today. Plock utilizes his art practice as a mental and emotional outlet, where he illustrates the childhood spirit of make-believe and fantasy.
The artist, a storyteller by nature with a formal education in creative writing and modern literature, easily encapsulates a full narrative voiced through a single character. He breathes a sense of humor and cheer into his pieces by depicting unexpected characters (such as TuffTaco), monsters, and animals in everyday human conditions.
The opening reception for Rest For The Wicked will be held at The Shooting Gallery on Saturday, August 14th, 2010 from 7-11pm.
The exhibit will be on display through September 4th, 2010 and is free and open to the public.
