In a new show at Gallery 30 South in Pasadena, Hi-Fructose co-founder Attaboy shows sculptural and painted works on wood, which are often interactive. “Undergrowth,” tackling themes of “death, decomposition and rebirth,” features more than 60 works from the artist. These creations are part of a series that began in late 2017. The show runs May 2-26, with an opening reception planned for Sunday, May 5, from 3 p.m.-6 p.m.
“The body of work was the first Atta created as self-therapy,” the gallery says. “For the first time, the experienced artist and designer’s work became a comfort. After the deaths of his older brother and grandfather Seifert channeled and referenced themes which over-populated his grandmother’s ceramics and needle-points, albeit with a much darker, personal take.”
