Description

Reception Thursday, Sept 7; Exhibition Sept 1-30

ARTISTS STATEMENT

Adam and Jason have been making art/love together for over 20 years, and now they are cranky gay uncles. The exhibit is a mix of Adam's "Grumpy Guncles" paintings and Jason's Barbra Streisand albums covered with hot glue. Crabby Mecier rests his hot glue guns on the record covers while crafting his mosaics.

ADAM ANSELL BIO

The daring paintings of Adam Ansell take the viewer into a bizarre and bold-colored world that may be identifiable, yet not the same for each person. Adam's edgy high fashion portraits are filled with contradictions: rugged and delicate, improvisational and meditational, spontaneous and labored, passionate and empty.

JASON MECIER BIO

Pop Artist Jason Mecier creates one of a kind outrageous mosaic portraits. He meticulously fabricates anybody out of anything, from Kevin Bacon out of bacon, to Honey Boo Boo out of 25 lbs. of trash. Jason's artwork has been featured everywhere from Entertainment Weekly to The New York Times, on TV shows like Glee, Rachael Ray and TMZ, as well as music videos by Pink and Pitbull. His portraits are hanging in Ripley's Believe it or Not Museums, countless celebrity homes, and even in The Playboy Mansion!
