Today's the last day of Mike Egan and John Casey's solo shows respectively entitled 'We Bleed Black Blood When we Die Dark Deaths' and 'Little Exorcisms' at Breeze Block Gallery. Here's a few images from the exhibitions.
Mike Egan's current exhibition Live Fast Die Faster is showing at Gauntlet Gallery in SF until Halloween....
Gauntlet Gallery is proud to present Live Fast, Die Faster, an all-new solo exhibition by Mike Egan (curated by Sven Davis) in the Gauntlet Gallery 1 space.
Mike Egan is a Pittsburgh-based artist whose consistent subject matter celebrates both life and death; and the many narratives that fall somewhere between. Using confident strokes of heavily layered acrylic paint, shellac, wood and nails, Egan composes rich narrative within his work to tell stories of hope and despair, the living and the dying, and the ones left behind. Often using anecdotal text and a heavy dose of symbolism within his cryptic paintings, Egan presents a highly personal insight to love and loss in a unique warm & colorful folk art style.
The exhibition features 42 new paintings and a series of painted miniature coffins as well as a mural installation by the artist.
