Scott Radke’s ‘Burlap’ – Recap

Scott Radke merged fantasy with reality last weekend in “Burlap” (previewed here), his latest collection of mystical hybrid marionettes and photographs of them in action. Radke’s new sullen-faced woodland creatures, some suspended in flight, are his daydreams brought to life in shapes, desaturated colors, and burlap textures. An exhibition of this size is rare for Radke, whose schedule is admittedly daunting as he also balances work as a motion picture creature artist. Scott Radke’s artwork is famously featured in films such as Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland, Voices In My Head, a BBC documentary, and many other projects. The true interpretation of “Burlap” is in the eye of the beholder, as Radke speaks in the language of his own imagination. “Burlap” by Scott Radke exhibits at Thinkspace Gallery, Culver City, CA, from June 18 – July 9, 2011. - Caro
