“Artwork of Thad Dachille: Circus Animals Not Included”
The theme of the show is based on finding inspiration from the following: materials gathered from the street, signs, icons, symbols, the human body, and glimpses of the artists environment. These artifacts are reassembled into imagery comprised of paintings and graphics generated on both mixed media canvases and wall prints. With this process, there is a combination that takes place, a matching of seemingly different parts, with the desire of making new-found associations.
The works are eclectic, some are very obvious illustrations with cartoon imagery, and other examples are completely abstract as they have been cross-cut through various interests.
“Work by Ross Hardy”
Some of the work in the show uses Iron-Oxide to stain paper. Since Iron-Oxide is the result of metal rusting, It is a representation of the waste left behind by past industry. The act of photocopying shows a progress of each piece intensifying and then fading out. This progress is a representation of how these industries have impacted our environment, but now are fading out and giving way to new clean technologies.
