Casey Weldon (HF Vol. 32) adds a touch of luminosity to his bold and bright surreal paintings. He expands on his glowing palette to a mystical effect in his new solo exhibition, “Tropefiend.” Opening tonight at Spoke Art Gallery in San Francisco, the show portrays Weldon’s electric colored subjects in an amplified world. This, he combines with witty yet unsettling motifs, such as in a portrait of girl with fireworks exploding from her eyes, or a rattlesnake protecting her nest of radiating eggs. Even cute kittens, a familiar image in his works, become distorted as they form the outline of a grimacing face. See more after the jump!
