Twin Peaks’d-out

Posted by on Mar 4, 2009 in Art Shows, Paint, Twin Peaks | 7 Comments

OK, this is going to be one of the longest posts I have made.  It includs eight paintings inspired by the show Twin Peaks.  All of which are portraits of various characters.  These are for a show at Gallery 1988 in LA called Idiot Box, which opens April 2.  It should be a good ol’ time.

Anyhow, here are the paintings.  All roughly 8″x5″ acrylic on bass wood panels.

The Man From Another Place as played by Michael J. Anderson

“That gum you like is going to come back in style.”

I also attempted a Sarah Palmer painting, but it did not succeed. I might post it later along with a boat load of process for this whole series.

Until then, or the next painting(s) I make, later.

    Awesome! Even though I don’t like that show and think it’s lame, I like these painting and think they’re NOT lame!

    What a twist!

    I only ever saw a couple of episodes – these are making me want to see the shows just to see these characters. Love the way they just fall off the edges of the slabs into and over the bard.

    Log Lady? Are you sure? I think it may be your mother in disguise!

    Are you selling these? I would love to own a few of them in particular: The Log Lady, The Man From Another Place and Dr. Lawrence Jacoby.
