Brian Chippendale

"What lies behind the Black Hole, does Disney truly know? When the chips are finished and the human brain is no less the floppy disk of yesterday, who's to say what it will take to survive. All I can do is copy down the instructions I am given, sharpen them into a knife and stab the asshole barking orders." -Brian Chippendale

And stab and stab and stab. The sweat from stabbing has pooled into an overflowing rainbow-hued river that we are happy to present to you as Fruiting Bodies, the new solo exhibition by Brian Chippendale. Layers upon layers of silk-screened prints and drawings on paper form dense magical landscapes where moments from another world are frozen in time. The energy of this fantastical otherworld is infectious. You just want to go there and hang out with these characters and frolic in fields of mushrooms and butterflies, eat some strange plants, barter for peanut butter and maybe fight some cat-headed warriors. [Cinders Gallery]

Fruiting Bodies by Lightning Bolt drummer/vocalist Brian Chippendale will be on display at Williamsburg's Cinders Gallery from June 4th to July 3rd. There's a recption there tonight (Friday, June 4th) 7-10pm. A flyer is below.

Lightning Bolt will be touring with summer from the end of June through Whartscape in Baltimore on July 24th. Full tour dates are below...
