Dennis McNett, creating works under the moniker “Wolfbat,” creates wild woodcarvings, sculptures, and installations A new show at Heron Arts in San Francisco, titled “Hallowolfbat,” is an ornate, largescale adventure into McNett’s practice, with some of the creatures crafted for this show up to 10 feet tall. At the opening, the street was closed off and rock act High on Fire performed.
“The artist looks deep into the unknown while harping from traditional tattoo imagery, making creepy creatures feel antiquated and legendary,” a statement says. “McNett has an uncanny ability to transform a space into one of his dungeons of relic and relish with puppets coming to life, taunting and teasing the audience. The artist’s installation interacts with his viewers, making the HALLOWOLFBAT spectacle enjoyable for young and old.”
The show runs through Nov. 25. He was last featured on HiFructose.com here.
