ODDITIES, a Ringling Museum Courtyard exhibition of five local artists who compose uncanny surrealisms. The works contain traces of sarcasm, wit, gore, and psychological discoveries within outlandish compositions.Through their narratives these artists bypass reason and rationality by accessing their unconscious mind to expose the complex and repressed inner worlds of desire and violence. A series of illustrations, composed of idyllic colors and familiar landscapes meant to entice the viewer, ODDITIES’ artists use monsters and creatures to represent the culture and customs they navigate on a daily basis. Pop surreal influences, the macarabe, and eroticism layer to engage and encourage the gaze. All the work on exhibit is for sale! #RinglingUnderground
