Charlie Immer Is All "Glow Up and Down"
Thinkspace Projects is pleased to present past Juxtapoz cover artist Charlie Immer’s Glow Up and Down in their Gallery II. His spectacular and surprisingly inviting world of candy-coloured-gross-out-flavored mayhem offers truly wondrous visual feasts for those who are unperturbed by oodles of goo, slime, blood and the occasional severed head.
Due to the jubilant carnage occurring between Immer’s protagonists and their merry little victims, who incidentally range from dancing skulls dripping with jellied ooze, to fruity characters in varying stages of dismemberment, one cannot help but get swept up in the high spirited horror and overall exuberance on display. These expertly rendered gory happenings carefully tread the fine line between repulsion and attraction, exploring the duality that exists and striking an extraordinary balance; the result is a masterclass in titillation that also succeeds in tickling funny bones.
"Titled Glow Up and Down, my upcoming exhibition encapsulates the joy of radiant exploration," Immer said. "Each piece aims to capture the allure and mystique of glowing forms, inviting viewers to bask in the radiance of peculiar characters as they navigate through ambiguous spaces. As with all my work I hope it makes the viewer smile.”
