“Staring Out Loud”, solo exhibition by Marty McCutcheon.
Marty McCutcheon’s paintings are inspired by a long-standing admiration of printed letter forms and a budding love of literature. Richly textured with subtly scintillating color, these paintings are magnified, impressionistic representations of letters and words printed on the pages of books. The textual content is sourced from literature listened to while working at home and in the studio— thus, these are words the painter originally heard, rather than read. The chosen texts recall memorable, meaningful passages, but are composed in four and five line fragments, in order to obscure, but not obliterate, their specific origins.

With “Staring Out Loud”, Roll Up Gallery offers a unique contemplative experience of the power of written words and the beautiful shape of letterforms.

Marty McCutcheon is a California-based artist producing abstract paintings, three-dimensional and collaborative artworks, photography and art videos. His work has been exhibited across the U.S. and internationally.

Who is pure e̶v̶i̶l̶ ? Info and Ethos

I’ve just arrived on the West Caost from a PURE EVIL PICKERS trip across the USA, visiting the following cities;

Austin TX – Denver CO – Albuquerque NM – Sedona AZ – Las Vegas NV – Death Valley CA – Zabriskie Point CA – Bakersfield CA – Oakland, CA

Along the way I found ‘rusty gold’, old porcelain and enamel signs, and Im starting to paint these signs with my iconic ‘Nightmare Series’..

Each piece is an unique work of art…

DEATH VALLEY is the culmination of this road trip , a one day exhibition of new work, MADE IN AMERICA.

Somewhere between the 1535 execution of Sir Thomas More and the year 2000, Charles Uzzell Edwards became the street artist known as Pure Evil. It’s a pairing of an odd lineage that has produced fanged bunnies and Warhol-esque portraiture famous throughout the streets and galleries of the world.

“Idols” Strider Patton Solo Exhibition
This series is made to celebrate and honor those who have shared their skills, experiences, and passions to help make the world a better place. Todays world has a false sense of idolism, with celebrity and stardom status being given to those who only seek to better themselves. Through this work, I have imagined what the world could be like if we idolized those who have and are giving their all for us. What do you think the world would be like if their names were household names instead of those who only care about me?
