Wilcox’s work is simply haunting and the sepia-toned gothic edge to his new body of work is more pronounced than ever before. The two Medieval altarpieces were by far the stands out of the exhibition for us. His work is the perfect mix of modern perception with classical technique.
Swung by Merry Karnowsky Gallery on Saturday night for her debut solo show with rising Los Angeles artist Edward Walton Wilcox. Wilcox took full advantage of Merry’s new window facing the always busy LaBrea Ave by installing a spinning skull sculpture (see above). Amazing. A true traffic stopper of a front window install. Don’t miss this show!
