Brooklyn based artist Lori Nelson and German artist Moki Mioke, who goes by “Moki”, illustrate different ideas of ‘strangeness’ in their art. For Nelson, this is embodied by her characters’ physical appearance, while Moki finds it in her surroundings. The two artists will exhibit together at the Cotton Candy Machine gallery in Brooklyn on September 11th. For her exhibition titled “Coming of Age”, Lori Nelson expands on her cast of young monster-movie inspired subjects covered in hair and scales. Like one of horror’s most famous characters, the monster of Frankenstein, Nelson’s are also perpetually misunderstood.
