Up next: Phillip Kremer
Please join us Friday, May 17 for the opening of Stable Genius. 7-9 pm.
This month One Grand Gallery is pleased to present Houston-based artist Phillip Kremer, with his exhibit Stable Genius. Kremer uses digital manipulation to create surreal portraits of celebrities, political figures, and faceless others. Many of Kremer’s portraits appear grotesque, lurking in the uncanny valley. He explores how repetition of a single facial feature, or the replacement of eyes with some extra forehead, can quickly transform people into monsters. At the same time as they are disturbing, Kremer’s images are funny. He often plays with the appearance of politicians who commit monstrous acts, mocking them. This cathartic body of work processes difficult truths of the current political climate, and daily realities of the American working class.
