SCARY GOOD SHOW was a collective exhibition I co-curated with Billy Frolov.
I decided to design this catalogue primarily as a document of the exhibition, presenting the work in context of the curated gallery space. I also wanted to give each of the artists the opportunity to elaborate further on their intentions with written statements. I am proud to show the artwork of Scary Good Show, as well as words from many of the artists in this book.
“Scary Good is a simultaneous celebration of that which makes us most afraid and the themes that define the Halloween season. Monsters, bad trips, hatred, trauma, jack-o-lanterns, isolation, ghosts, and death; Scary Good explores the depths and shallows of fear”. —Billy Frolov
Catalogue is 10” x 10”
with black felt on the back cover for a scary good tactile feeling for your fingertips….
