FEATURING WORK BY:

CURATED BY LANCE TURNBOW, WHO WRITES:
“The cast of characters you see here have been friends for along time. Thrown together by the world of tattooing, three of them are tattoo artists and three of them long time canvases for them to make their mark on.
Suggested by Josh Lord, ‘Myth’, was a fitting theme for the show. With all our tattoo experience, the idea of exploding myth was a natural one. In further conversations with one another we began to really push our own ideas of what ‘myth’ really meant to each of us. The one constant in our conversations was that everyone needs it in their lives in some from or fashion. Whether it is an interest in an ancient religion, not believing in a popular thought, or completely starting one of your own, myth is always someplace in our thoughts, driving us on our paths in one way or another.
This show is a culmination of our thoughts and beliefs on this topic.”
