Abracadaver! New works by Violet Aveline (Belmont)

Violet_Aveline_1_2014
On view Friday, April 4th – May 28th
Opening Reception Sunday, April 13th 4-6 pm

Violet Aveline was raised in Indiana and went to the Herron school of witchcraft and wizardry. She became a member of Ghastly Cave where she dissected the innards of many ghouls and monsters. Having become acquainted with all the fiends there were to see she moved to Detroit and helped to open up another silkscreen studio. This pattern continued to happen in Portland Oregon where the wealth of demonic delights have yet to be exhausted. References for these works include but are not limited to: Neo Rauch, Raymond Pettibon, Matt Brinkman, Skinner, Wolfeyes, Liars, Arab on Radar, Sammy Terry, Vincent Price, H.P. Lovecraft, Boris Karloff, Mark Twain, and many more. Each painting is a story whether it is widely known or a secret whispered in the dark. Some are parts of famous myths and some are new myths from newspapers. All of them are lies told as truths to help us sleep at night. “When we die we all look the same. Death is the great equalizer.” For more information, please contact Wendy Swartz (wendy@stumptowncoffee.com) Belmont Stumptown 3356 SE Belmont Street
