FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:ARTIST STATEMENT SOLO SHOW
DELECTABLE DEMONS - A Solo Exhibition By ANGIE MASON
Opens This JULY 7th 2006 at Schmancy Gallery,Seattle,WA.
Schmancy Gallery Boutique is located at 1930 Second Ave Seattle Wa.98101
Delectable Demons brings forth a melancholy menagerie of characters and
worlds which are a funny, whimsical, dark and tragic view at the wonderful mess of life.
What are seemingly cute characters are also twisted, moody bruised souls.
Visually exploring combinations of funny vs. sad and of dark vs. light
playing a perfect balance on this see-saw of a visual ride.
Within these works I like to utilize the balance of opposites through my
characters as a way to paint truths about being human. Creating this
balance or tension of a tug of war between good and evil, hope and
despair is at the core of these works. We all have to face demons
in our lives and in my paintings my characters are sometimes
facing theirs or are in fact the demon themselves.
