AboutStrychnin Gallery wanted to pay tribute to one of our favorite apocalyptic forecasts; the extraterrestrial invasion! The year 2013 celebrates the 60th anniversary of two 1950's sci-fi classics: H.G. Well's War of the Worlds and Invaders from Mars. An artistical and aesthetic admiration that only this era and genre can boast about are their iconic poster artwork. Put two and two together and so was born a show that will immortalize not only the making of these films, but also the following of all sci-fi and space life believers.
For one month, we will be home to exclusive renditions of cult classic interpretations of alien-life, unidentified flying objects, laser guns, tripods and weapons of mass destruction. Instead of shying from the unavoidable invasion, we have brought the invasion to our premises! The artists involved took inspiration from the aesthetics of all promotional and cinematographical work of this cinematic generation. The featured artists will be Meredith Dittmar, Seymour, Mimi S, Derek Nobbs, Yoko d'Holbachie, Mark Alfrey, Cliff Wallace, Eugene Plotnikov, Nicolas Le Borgne, Joe Fenton, Carlos Valenzuela, Chris Dean, Serge Gay Jr., Jonathan Bergeron, Monique Ligons, Tom Lewis, Elmer Presslee, Matt Gordon, Skeleton Heart and Glenn Barr.
