"Dark Matters" Studio Visit

Illustration // Tuesday, June 10, 2014
In keeping with our recent interest in artist's studios, we've taken a trip into the three workspaces belonging to the artists of "Dark Matters," an exhibition fraught with night-things and gnarled creatures which debuted this month at Bash Contemporary in San Francisco. The artists are Robert Bowen, Caitlin Hackett and Dave Correia, and together they populate a nightmarish world with cold colors, distorted anatomy, expressive brush strokes and grotesquely accurate details. Take a look into the studios where these otherworldly realms were created, and make sure to catch this show before it comes down!

The Contemporary Mythology of Caitlin Hackett

Illustration // Friday, May 06, 2011
Caitlin Hackett’s work is an intoxicating combination of beautiful, grotesque, and morbidly romantic imagery, similar to a Dark Crystal dreams and Victorian nightmares; she creates work pulling from a wide spectrum of myths, fairy tales and natural fantasy. Mostly rendered with ballpoint pens and watercolors, it exhibits a level of detail, skill and patience that is difficult to surpass.
