David Spriggs and Xia Xiaowan.


Using multiple layers of clear glass, Canada based David Spriggs and Chinese born Xia Xiaowan, transform flat artwork into 3D sculptures. Viewers are treated to different shifting perspectives of the works based on where they stand in the art space. Spriggs work revolves around powerful explosive imagery, often resembling storms, cosmic blasts or firework like explosions. Xiawan’s “spatial paintings,” which often feature distorted figures, are drawn individually using colored pencil on tinted glass. Only when these pieces are combined on their floor racks do the images create the whole hologram like effect.

Serial Killer Art.

“…clowns can get away with murder.” – John Wayne Gacy, 1978
In a new segment for the blog, today is the serial killer spotlight. Today we’re highlighting one of America’s most  infamous murders, John Wayne Gacy, aka the Killer Clown. A lot of people have heard the name, perhaps know JWG to be a serial killer of a number of teenage boys over a six year span (ages ranging from 14 to 21), but many may not know the origins of his nickname he received after being arrested. John Wayne Gacy created a persona of Pogo the Clown and would work a number of gigs that included birthday parties and fund-raising events.
