Damien Correll @ Faesthetic/Scion Show- 06.21.09
With so many lost souls out there “finding themselves” via quarter, third, and mid life crises these days… i loved the idea of reminding us all that “not all haystacks contain needles”. It’s not about looking hard enough to find what you want… if its not there! Usually. Really its about looking in the RIGHT places? Making smarter decisions as we “grow up”? I love this one as a reminder to look up to when you’re faced with more opportunities than are feasible, as it alleviates some of the guilt in turning a few down.
Rant aside ~ these pieces by Damien Correll at the Faesthetic curated “This must be the place” show at the Scion Space in Culver City broke the black + white + teal color palette a little, but his illustration/graphic style is so playful its easy to forgive him and try to find meaning within his could be random juxtapositions.
