~BRENDAN MONROE . . CINDERS HAUS CLUB
the BLOB MAN . . . COMETH !!
BRENDAN MONROE . . . is the CINDERS ARTIST OF THE MONTH – for JUNE 2015.
aka brendantheblob – checking out his work, just seemed to come naturally, after looking into what . . LUKE MURPHY is up to.
like LUKE, BRENDAN MONROE also cultivates . . . “a taste for the scientific, math, physics, and the surreal“, but while Luke seems to be leaving us hints, stick men, and scribbled coded messages, that go deep into unconsciousness and ancient ‘systems’, Brendan seems to have left us far behind, and has serious traveled . . far off – the ‘bio’ deep end.

not only does it boggle the imagination, but it has amazing colors, amazing color fade, and wonder-ous 3_D implications – on a purely formal ‘flat’ plane.

though I can’t help remarking, since the current scene is SO absolutely swamped by hand-built pottery and clay, that even on that crowded playing field – Brendan Monnroe . . stands out:
