The Greatest Show on Earth

This show was a collaboration between Senior Fine Artist, Wayne Levy, and Fine Artist, Jeremy Fisher.

Gallery Visitors were surprised to find theirselves entering the gallery into a large cage as "alien" creatures ridiculed them tirelessly.

My work is purely about telling stories from my imagination. Story telling is something I am very passionate about, and I have been telling stories through my art for a long time. My favorite stories to tell are the ones from my phantasmagorical dream world. These stories consist of mystical creatures that dwell in my mind and the fantastical adventures they have. All of my artwork is a first person view seen through the eyes of the deceased Dr. Z, the scientist/archeologist, who has transported through a gateway to another universe. As Dr. Z explores this universe he records everything he sees. What we see is everything he has recorded and brought back, which includes the origins and the fate of the human race. Installation is the biggest medium I am using, but not everything is limited to installation. There will be many colorful paintings, masks and an extensive journal.
