This Saturday night Pervasion: The Art of Gary Baseman and Tim Biskup opens at the Laguna Art Museum.
Compartriots for several years, and this being their first museum exhibition of showing together exclusively, Pervasion explores how both artists are at the forefront of blurring the lines between fine art, toy culture and other forms of media. Each has created unique characters that originate within densely packed imagery found in their paintings and sculptures, such as Baseman’s Toby, or Biskup’s Helper. These characters then become motifs that appear on clothing, in books, as toys, and even on animated cartoons.
I think the opening will run from 6 to 9pm but call the museum for more details. Should be packed.
