Artists Haunted Euth and Tina St. Claire are pleased to announce the unveiling of their newest collaborative and solo pieces at their upcoming show “Dreamland Summer”. What to expect at this show is the result of the two artists painting together both in studio and on the streets of Los Angeles for the past year. This new body of work merges their backgrounds in printmaking, illustration, and graphic design to create iconic imagery and create a visual lexicon that is definitively their own.
“Dreamland Summer” features the duo’s newest wildly colorful paintings, limited edition hand-printed t-shirts in a special collectors color way, the release of a limited edition artist's series skateboard deck and more.
Saturday, August 30, 2014 from 6 P.M. - 10 P.M.
323 Culver Blvd. Playa del Rey, CA 90293
Music, open bar and free to the public.
“Dreamland Summer” is themed on Haunted Euth's idea of basic obsession; the utter fixation on ritual and the repeating of actions converged into TS Claire's world of female empowerment and abstraction. In many ways these themes have been the driving force of both artist's work. Subliminal messages integrated into patterns, hidden agendas, references and ideology may fill the rich and heavily layered body of work, revealing themselves to only the most attentive of viewers.
About the artists:
Haunted Euth is a notorious Los Angeles based painter and print maker known for a vast array of visual works, many of which are public installations and landmarks well known around the city in which he resides. "Dreamland Summer" marks the debut of the first half of his pieces in a new body of work "Basically Obsessed" and features hand painted wood panels that focus on new patterns the artist is creating based on items and objects from his personal life, whether it be pizza and knives or pills and coffee.
TS Claire is a self-taught native Los Angeles painter whose work focuses on the theme of female empowerment and balances elements of portraiture, abstraction, design and screen printing. Her new body of work for “Dreamland Summer” focuses on a move toward abstraction, split narrative and indecision, that combines nature and design with pattern and surrealism.
