Awful/Resilient: The Art of Alex Pardee

Enter the incredible world of Alex Pardee, inhabited by a disturbing menagerie of misfit monsters and improbable heroes plucked from the very nightmares of childhood.

This collection brings us a broader picture of the extent of his twisted genius and the dark themes that run through his work. Yet, amongst the entrails and decapitations, the gaping maws of razor-sharp teeth, improbable appendages and suppurating fleshy masses, we discover a vein of goodness, of humanity.

Wide eyes stare childlike as terrifying creatures lovingly clasp and support each other, providing comfort in their search for community.
