Memes at Gallery 1988

Tonight, Friday May 4th, Gallery 1988 opens their 8 year anniversary show "Memes" where artists pick their favorite internet meme and make something based on it.  For mor info on Memes you can check out

For my painting I chose The Slender Man.

The Slender Man.  Oil on Canvas. 12" x 24". 2012

Slender Man (a.k.a Slenderman) is a mythical creature often depicted as a tall and thin figure wearing a black suit with a necktie and a blank face. According to the legend, he can stretch out or shorten his arms at will and has tentacle-like appendages protruding from his back. Depending on various vloggers and bloggers interpretations of the myth, the creature can show a wide range of abilities, ranging from causing memory loss, insomnia, paranoia, coughing fits with or without blood spitting (nicknamed Slendersickness) to triggering photograph/video distortions and statics as well as having teleportation power.
Slender Man has inspired fan arts, fictional creepypastas as well as a mockumentary series done in the style of the 1999 indie horror film Blair Witch Project.

Please come check out the painting in person at Gallery 1988: Melrose.
Show opens Friday May 4th 7-10pm.  Show runs from May 4th - 26th
