Balloons, Cartoons and Other Lampoons
May 25, 2022 @ 12:00 pm - 5:00 pm
Balloons, Cartoons and Other Lampoons opens at Artful : The Gallery on May 25th with a solo exhibition of the work of Daniel Needham.
Daniel Needham has a wide range of artistic production which extends from sculpting in marble to painting on black velvet, including stops and investigations at most every point between. His exquisite craftsmanship elevates Needham’s disdain for the sacred…well…to the level of sacred. Describing his work as post-Catholic, Needham finds inspiration in his dismay about the stories he was told as a boy. He now derives great pleasure in re-interpreting and re-illustrating these tales to deliver a more humanist (and humorous) version. Needham’s keen intelligence, sardonic humour, and acerbic perspective serve him well as he levels his gaze squarely at the sacred icons of culture. He is unflinching as he pokes fun, and as precise in his execution as a surgeon. These highly irreverent objects of art challenge and provoke with the graceful sword edges of humour and humanity.
Balloons, Cartoons and Other Lampoons runs May 25th through June 25th at Artful : The Gallery. Join us for an evening celebration of the exhibition on May 27th, 7:00 to 9:00pm. Gallery hours Weds – Sat 12:00 to 5:00pm.
