Induced Epidemics: Round up

Museum of Death

Here I am back in cold, cold CanadaLand with many updates coming your way. There’s really only one place to start; the Haute Macabre Induced Epidemics show. The turn out was really overwhelming and a very big surprise to all those involved. I would say the space could hold about 20 people comfortably but if I had to guess over 100 turned up and probably even more. [A little secret - I am really bad at estimating numbers/volume and distance.]

A noteworthy difference to any gallery opening I’ve attended before was the huge variance in the types of people in attendance. The walls were literally crammed with some of the best creepy/dark art I’ve seen in recent years and it was so good to see how others are pushing what is expected from artists. I was honestly so humbled to be on the walls with everyone involved. Unfortunately the gallery was simply far too crowded to get good photos of everyone’s work, but I do have a nice little sampling below.

You might be able to tell from the progression of the photos that I was handed a few too many glasses of wine that night. I’m not a big drinker, and it’s rare that I drink enough to feel intoxicated but I’m also British and to refuse an offering is practically unheard of; it’s gotten me into trouble several times at social events. I’m also the kind of person to hang around in the background and I am very bad at introducing myself to people. But, I wanted to thank those that managed to hunt me out of the crowd and have a little chat. Although, I did hear from a couple of people that they were sad to have not seen me there – I was there, I was probably just tucked away in a corner somewhere quietly enjoying the buzz from the crowd [not the wine - I know what you're thinking!].

My framed painting [Almost Midnight] is available for US$650 by contacting the Museum of Death on 1 (323) 466-8011

Enjoy, and I apologise in advance for the progressive blurriness…

    Hey there. Did a search for Induced Epidemics photos and found your post. Thanks a ton for taking such great shots from the show. I wasn’t able to make it out for the show and see my pieces hanging, but thanks to your photos I was able to see that and all the fun and madness I missed. Thanks again for taking the time to shoot. Cheers!

    Your photos are beautiful! I am so glad they were of the people looking at the art and not just the art all by itself. Well done.

    Thank you! I’m glad you like them. I feel like I spend much of my time people watching at events like these.
