Why yes, that IS a David Yow art opening!

 

Probably not going to
do the “ballsac” trick this time around, however…

David Yow – the notoriously unhinged frontman for The Jesus
Lizard and Scratch Acid – brings a new art collection, “Glass Gas
Mask,” to Fuse Gallery on Aug. 24 (running through Sept. 21) for his first
solo New York City exhibit. The opening reception is Aug. 24 from 7 to 10 p.m.
with Yow in attendance. (Fuse is at 93
2nd Avenue in NYC, www.fusegallerynyc.com)

 

Yow recently returned to the art world after leaving design
behind to pursue music post-college.  He participated in his first group
show in Spring of 2010 and has since taken part in worldwide exhibits as well
as several Los Angeles
solo shows.

ABOUT GLASS GAS MASK: “Working
both digitally and by hand, artist and musician David Yow produces a body of
work that has a keen compositional sensibility often combined with a dark sense
of humor.  He utilizes design elements of line, texture, and shape in
conjunction with found images and objects to enhance, alter and create
graphically bold imagery with an edge.  In his digital works, Yow delineates
images to exaggerate an emotion to absurdity; and in the paintings, he
integrates acrylic, collage, charcoal, pencil, spit, hair, crayon, wood, etc.
to craft a deviant somewhat biomorphic creation, that is, or was, living –
whatever it is, is very difficult to discern.”
