Ruby Silver Deer Skull

Transparent ruby sheathed in silver leaf, a classic and especially blingy look. Inspired by Venetian sculptural sensibilities exploiting a similar use of precious metals and striking colors. Ruby Deer Skull is approximately 8 in. wide and is the first from my Trophy Series to be completed with a display stand. As with many pieces of […] …read more

Beautiful Angle 9.20.18

Sixteen Years in the Making
Beautiful Angle at Fulcrum Gallery
September 20th – October 12th
Public Reception: September 20th 6 – 9pm

Join Lance Kagey, Tom Llewellyn, and the rest of the Beautiful Angle family for a rare fine art show at Fulcrum Gallery.

Instead of the typical large-runs of posters you are familiar with, we will be displaying and selling one-of-a-kind originals. The first layer on each piece was laid down as many as sixteen years ago. Over the following months and years, additional layers of Beautiful Angle imagery, colors, and type were added.

Each one is different. Each one is connected. Each original piece documents the month-by-month history of this Tacoma-based street art project, one layer of ink at a time.

– A Glitch Portrait Series –

Public Reception: August 25th 3:00-7:00pm
Fulcrum Gallery 10yr. Anniversary Party 7:00 -2:00am

∅Φσþς “Removing a face doesn’t remove the identity of the image, on the contrary it unlocks it. With these initial constraints removed opportunities are fertile for abstracting, fracturing and multiplying an images “identity”. The result is a multi dimensional conversation opening up new and wider lanes for both the image and the observer” – Jo Bazuka

Jo Bazuka is unapologetic as an artist, creating work that strikes in the moment is contemporary, and shifts effortlessly through a variety of mediums. Music is his primary catalyst driving all other artistic endeavors. MC’ing, dance, graffiti and tattooing have all been linked through this thread of sound. The “Glitch Portraits” series of visual works arose when all other previous avenues appeared blocked. This new medium follows suit, with the musical thread influencing even the smallest facets, a digitized amalgamation of music, colour, fashion, creation and destruction. Embodying Hip-Hop and lo-fi’s sample based nature, punk rock’s “color outside the lines”, anti-authoritarian overtones, vivid bass and glitch inspired textures and effects, the cool feels of reggae, dub and the abstract improvisational sprit of jazz.
