HF Vol. 12 cover artist Josh Keyes will be debuting his second solo show of 2011 at San Francisco’s Fecal Face Dot Gallery. Whereas the David B Smith show, “Collision” (which we reviewed here) focused on the narrative of evolution, death and uprising, “Magician’s Garden” seems, as the title would imply, more surrealistic, magical and mystical. For his latest, Keyes seems to take the tranformative nature of his animal subjects even further, antlers turn to geese in “Writhing”, while a cerebus is seen not as a hound at Hades, but rather a multi-headed tiger at a junkyard. For a more in depth look into Josh’s mind, check out this recent interview on Fecal Face, and some new detail pics of three of the new works, here on Hi-Fructose.
