Stranger Factory are pleased to announce 3 new solo exhibitions coming to their gallery in June! Three awesome artists, Jasmine Becket-Griffith, Desiree Fessler and Stephan Webb, will all show their work at the Albuquerque gallery from June 3rd till June 26th. Below we give you a short introduction to each artist.
World renowned fantasy artist, Jasmine Becket-Griffith, known for her highly rendered imaginative ‘pop’ genre fantasy, horror, sci-fi and gothic based artworks, will be focusing on small, highly detailed works for her upcoming exhibition. Her work features doe-eyed innocents in sweet, idealized scenes reminiscent of old master’s portraits. Her soft technique of painting plays with light and color in a way that the transcends typical fantasy narrative and is more of an exploration in escapism from a harsh modern world.
Highly sought out by major entertainment studios from Walt Disney to Hot Topic, Jasmine has reached acclaimed international recognition with her fan base. Her original work can be seen gracing countless books (as well as art books), oracle decks, games, clothing, and more.
Becket-Griffith graduated from the University of Missouri with a bachelor’s degree in Studio Art. She currently lives in Celebration, FL with her husband, Matt and their cats with a satellite studio in London, England.
California based traditional painter, Desiree Fessler will be joining the main Stranger Factory gallery room with her exhibition.
Known for her humor and dreamy super sweet, colorful animal imagery, Fessler focuses on new works that explore her fascination with child-hood imagery juxtapozed against the contrasts of haunting and realistic animal archetypes and icons pulling the viewer through purposeful tension and emotions.
Fessler lives in Los Angeles with her husband David, and their amazing dog Ni.
Stephan Webb will be joining Stranger Factory with his newest exhibition of bronze sculpture and wearable art pieces.
Stephan creates complex surrealist sculptures that combine elements of biological forms and figures in metal casting and bronze sculpture highlighting the commentary on the fabricated nature of our surroundings as humans and pushing the conversation about the roles that nature, industry, and technology play in our lives and our constant need to seek harmonious balance between the two.
Webb lives in Albuquerque and is a graduate from the University of New Mexico with a BS in Biology.
If you happen to be in Albuquerque you should definitely look to hit up Stranger Factory on June 3rd for the Opening Night Reception.
