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.
Throughout history, the woods have served as a place for many fairy tale stories and legends. When the characters of Stephen Sondheim’s Into the Woods ventured into a dark wood, they went to fulfill their dreams and fantasies. What they were faced with instead was a place where nothing is what it seems and the truths of their realities. 25 artists were invited to explore just what is it about woods that are so compelling in Haven Gallery’s upcoming exhibition, “Into the Woods”: Adam Oehlers, Robert Kraiza, Mahlimae, Lara Dann, Marc Scheff, Anka Lavriv, Hannah Yata, Jean-Pierre Arboleda, Mab Graves, Brin Levinson, Gustavo Rimada, Poppy Lawman, Thomas Dodd, Chris Mars, Shane Pierce, William Basso, Nicole Palapoli, Rain, Paul Romano, Scott Radke, Christina Ridgeway, Joseph Weinreb, Brian Mashburn, Allen WIlliams and Vince Natale.
