Scott Radke‘s carved figures teem with creepiness and absorbing detail. He offers a collection of new characters in the show “Home at Last” at Haven Gallery in Long Island, New York. The show’s figures evolve Radke’s longstanding fascination with the unsettling, each new work carrying both grace and a sense of magic. He was last featured on HiFructose.com here.
Radke offers this on his new collection: “This is about three months of just letting my mind wander and throwing in little symbols of personal matters that go on in my daily life, coupled with just going about it intuitively,” he says. “It’s not often I get to do a large body of work to be grouped together.”
If you haven’t seen Radke’s work in a gallery setting in the past, you may have caught his characters making a cameo in Tim Burton’s 2010 film “Alice in Wonderland,” the Lewis Carroll adaption that featured wooded backdrops similar to the ones Radke’s works are often photographed inhabiting.
