I was recently reading Juxtapoz magazine’s interview with artist Liz McGrath who is having her first NY solo show. Liz’s work delivers a wonderful weirdness that stimulates the imagination. I’m reminded a bit of Thomas Woodruff’s Freak Parade, only these strange characters are 3 dimensional and in your face. Of course, her work is her own, but this particular show has a similar surreal circus thing going on. At any rate, she’s awesome and I wish I could get see the NY show in person.
I snagged a few pics to show you and in my quest to credit the photographer, I was pleased to see that he, like McGrath, walks a bit on the weird side. Adam Wallacavage’s octopus chandeliers and fringe celebrity portraits are pretty damn awesome.

I guess this week I’m proposing a toast, of sorts.
“Here’s to the awkward, the random, the quirky, the not-quite-right in all of us. Your inner weird could be the very stuff that makes you particularly awesome.”
*clinks imaginary glass and giggles*
See you next week (unless I decide to take off for my birthday which is unlikely as the self-imposed guilt-trip would probably be too much to bear. )
