Things Get Hairy with John SlabyIllustration // Tuesday, 23 Oct 2012
John Garrett Slaby lives and works in Philadelphia. His paintings are fabricated excerpts from emotional experiences. Broadly recognizable imagery and specific placement of subjects are used as metaphors to articulate a feeling through still life, landscape and portraiture. In this series, billowing locks of hair become a medium through which Slaby's subjects navigate the world and interact with one another.
