About this project

Featuring the Steampunk Burlesque paintings of Jessica Van Hulle. “Her sensual oil paintings feature themes of the individualist vs. the machine, full expression of authentic self-image, female sexual power, and hope on the edge of apocalypse.” And digital storyteller Alejandro Lee, whose comic books, Sally Sprocket and Piston Pete, brings to life a robotic western adventure. Also, bringing in a different artistic style is Hasbareaux Chronicker, with a knack for the unusual; his assemblage art is a sight for sore eyes. The extraordinarily vibrant illustrations of Julie Dillon, a north California native who puts a new spin on the word imagination. As for the rest of the gallery, I hope to create an atmosphere that allows the audience to absorb the aesthetic of Steampunk and have a complete experience with the art. At the opening reception, the first step to their occurrence will be the window display, putting on a live installation with Steampunk personalities bringing to life the essence of that world. And as they find their way into the gallery, the viewers will find that the art is not all that we offer, with seating arrangements made to look like the inside of a Victorian home and a silhouette video will be projected to tease them with more to come, which will remain on display for the remainder of the month. And as for libations at the reception, a master of his craft, Christian Marcus, will introduce everyone to his magical recipe of absinthe, along with his elaborate setups, that fits the theme of course. And not to forget the ragtime ambiance styling of Scott Joplin will fill the air and bring to life past generations. On April 17th, I will bring in Dr. Sketchy’s Anti-Art School to put together a theatrical display for artists and non-artists alike to come in an try their turn at life drawing. A free event that is not for profit, but for spreading the beauty of art to the world. And having the gallery experience become a personal encounter with the art in a relaxed, fun-filled environment.
