Hannah I Walsh - Paige A Turncliff - Dain Q Gore

October 31 - November 16, 2018
Fine Art Complex 1101 - Tempe, AZ

We three have come into our friendship by uncanny circumstances bestowed upon us by technology. Without the Internet, that infinite fount of cultural permutation, we would not have come to know each other so well as creative allies –or at all. Ever connected by archives upon archives of images and videos and sounds and text, we share a collective multimedia dreamworld. This show is as much an expression of each of ourselves as it is a love letter to the intellectual, emotional, digital hivemind that has grown between us and binds us together.
Beneath this skin of memes and nostalgia lies deeper still a profound interest in our present and tangible reality. Our work is a response to the religious and political pressures that exist in the outer world as well as within us, where we ever battle with our formative illusions of morality and identity. We explore all that is occult and devious not out of puerile rebellion, but out of a love and thirst for the many ways of viewing and experiencing this life.

Dain Quentin Gore is a painter, art professor, and puppeteer. He graduated with his MFA in Painting (2009) and his BFA in Drawing (2000) at Arizona State University. Using a “magpie aesthetic” of random, wandering obsession, he presents cosmic myths mixed with apocryphal and controversial philosophies in a humorous way. Mr. Gore has shown his art from Beijing to Santa Fe, and regularly performs with The Great Arizona Puppet Theater. His current work, a fusion of painting and puppetry, is an exploration of fantasy, fear, and fetish.
