“Long live transfinite mountains, the hollow earth, time machines, fractal writing, aliens, dada, telepathy, flying saucers, warped space, teleportation, artificial reality, robots, pod people, hylozoism, endless shrinking, intelligent goo, antigravity, surrealism, software highs, two-dimensional time, gnarly computation, the art of photo composition, pleasure zappers, nanomachines, mind viruses, hyperspace, monsters from the deep and, of course, always and forever, the attack of the giant ants!” - Rudy Rucker, author.
An exhibition of painting, sculpture and video by Cynthia Cruz and James Lincoln, two artists based at Thames-Side Studios.
Human limbs, hybrid forms, animal parts, and organic shapes dwell in landscapes of saturated palettes and patterned planes. Through shared interests in science fiction, caricature, animism and psychedelics both artists work intuitively to create fictitious scenes that inhabit the border between humour and terror.
