Laguna Art Museum
on November 7. Fish, yet another talented artist with roots in skate and street culture, worked on the three dozen or so pieces in the installation for over a year. The work touches on themes of transformation through struggle, using his blend of cute fairy tale-like animals, skulls, and hand figures to reference ideas and events from current times. Paintings in this installation feature hand carved wooden frames that are integrated into the work and a custom made bunny head couch (totem couch?) rounds out the exhibition. “Weathering the Storm” will be in Laguna until January 17, we have some shots from the installation and the opening reception. While not a proper substitution for seeing it up close, it still gives you an idea of the incredible stuff Fish is creating.
