Breath.

Sculptures by stop motion animation legend, Bruce Bickford will also be on view. Need I mention how beautifully balanced the curation of this combination of artists is? We are happy to share some never before seen preview images and artist’s quotes of their thoughts about Twin Peaks with more to come!

“Our conscious mind may lie to us, but deep within our subconscious mind lies the truth. David Lynch boldly takes you on an intricate journey through the haunted hallways and hidden rooms of the subconscious mind which we never knew were there. Lynch leaves us in both a state of confusion, yet complete understanding at the same time. Lynch is a true genius.”

– Lori Earley


“Twin Peaks is like a dark rose lurking in the shadows of a dark cold room spreading its petals of dreams.”

– Brett Amory


Martin Wittfooth

“I had never seen anything that so wonderfully bounced from reality to the nonsensical with such casual normalcy, exactly like that of a dream. Being in a nightmare where it’s hard to hide the smile on your face.”

 – Esao Andrews


“Watching ‘Twin Peaks’ forever changed my way of looking at art… it was that bridge between mainstream culture and intuitive art and storytelling that I needed to see and was ready to embrace at that point in my life as a budding young creative. I really connected with the nonlinear nature of the show, its odd sense of humor, the music and the perfectly balanced cast of characters. It became a social event on Fridays. I can’t say enough about its influence on me, and it continues to impact my art and the way I perceive art and even everyday life. I find myself glimpsing little “Twin Peaks” moments when I’m out sometimes (I live in the Pacific Northwest, about an hour or so from where the show was shot).”  

– Ryan Heshka


“The inspiration for this painting came from the shots of the flashlight illuminating small bits of the forest as Laura and Bobby walk through the woods. Only having a small fraction of the world revealed to you, and so much left in mystery, trying to find your way, or interpret what you see through such a narrow lens seems to perfectly articulate Lynch’s vision of how humans perceive the world around them, or at least how the characters in the world of Twin Peaks perceive it.”     

– Matt Rota
