On View March 2 – March 30, 2013
Funhouse Gallery is proud to present “HELL AS A ROOM”, by Washington artist, Justin Aerni.
HELL AS A ROOM is about the dark side of humanity. The hidden insanity that we try, and some times fail, to suppress on a daily basis. The degeneration of society and western culture. A post apocalyptic world full of people symbolized as monsters with an almost prophetic overtone. Aerni captures it all in a room for the world to see. We make our own nightmares, our own Hell, and this is his. This is Aerni’s first solo show containing numerous works on paper, canvas and other strange art objects you don’t want to miss!
Justin will be gifting the first 100 guests with a signed print!!
