"Charmingly Grotesque" exhibit at Hofheimer Art Library
Come see the new exhibit at the Hofheimer Art Library: Charmingly Grotesque.
When considering the word “grotesque”, it is easy to get caught up in only the negative connotation it infers. The images created by the artists in this exhibit, however, manage to visually illustrate the wide expanse of the word’s definitions. By using a mixture of fantastical creatures, distorted humans, and dreamlike surroundings, the artists manage to create whimsical narratives that skirt on the edge of macabre while remaining delightfully pleasant to view. As a result, the works act as an interesting commentary on human nature’s tendency towards the dark and unknown.
In honor of Halloween, take a moment to enjoy the images featured in this display and discover what the word “grotesque” means to you. Happy Halloween!
