Art Exhibit: Eric Joyner “It’s A Jungle Out There” - Eric will return for his fourth solo exhibit @ Corey Helford Gallery in California. The exhibit, which was inspired by his recent trip to Thailand, will have its opening reception on Jan 21st at 7pm and it will run until Feb 8th.
“It’s a Jungle Out There” will feature 18 pop-surrealism paintings of robots interacting with jungle animals such as elephants, monkeys and snakes. For example, in “All Wrapped Up,” a 48-by-36-inch oil painting, an anaconda coils around the body of a pink metallic robot, who holds a donut just out of reach.
Joyner realizes that the jungle is a strange locale for robots, but relishes in creating new environments for his electronic muses. “The best thing about creating these new worlds is that it takes me out of this one,” Joyner says. “I like discovering new places and things and this is one way for me to do it.”
In addition to new robots and animals, “It’s a Jungle Out There” will also include Ultraman, a character from the 1960s Japanese television series.
