Dave Rankin’s “Sea, Snakes and Spikes” at Phone Booth Gallery

by Nastia VoynovskayaPosted on

Currently on display at Phone Booth Gallery in Long Beach is Dave Rankin’s solo show, “Sea, Snakes and Spikes.” Like the title of the show, Rankin’s body of work is action-packed and bold. The paintings are constructed with loose brush strokes that create an underwater ambiance for Rankin’s color-saturated compositions. The figures are left hazy, with an Impressionistic feel, but a contemporary sci-fi influence pervades the work in the form of masked figures and human-sea creature hybrids. Take a look at some of Rankin’s paintings, images courtesy of Phone Booth Gallery, and check out the show before it closes on December 4.
