Who is pure e̶v̶i̶l̶ ? Info and Ethos

I’ve just arrived on the West Caost from a PURE EVIL PICKERS trip across the USA, visiting the following cities;

Austin TX – Denver CO – Albuquerque NM – Sedona AZ – Las Vegas NV – Death Valley CA – Zabriskie Point CA – Bakersfield CA – Oakland, CA

Along the way I found ‘rusty gold’, old porcelain and enamel signs, and Im starting to paint these signs with my iconic ‘Nightmare Series’..

Each piece is an unique work of art…

DEATH VALLEY is the culmination of this road trip , a one day exhibition of new work, MADE IN AMERICA.

Somewhere between the 1535 execution of Sir Thomas More and the year 2000, Charles Uzzell Edwards became the street artist known as Pure Evil. It’s a pairing of an odd lineage that has produced fanged bunnies and Warhol-esque portraiture famous throughout the streets and galleries of the world.

“Idols” Strider Patton Solo Exhibition
This series is made to celebrate and honor those who have shared their skills, experiences, and passions to help make the world a better place. Todays world has a false sense of idolism, with celebrity and stardom status being given to those who only seek to better themselves. Through this work, I have imagined what the world could be like if we idolized those who have and are giving their all for us. What do you think the world would be like if their names were household names instead of those who only care about me?

Moonage Daydream is an art show tribute to the many faces and phases of David Bowie. It includes work by over 20 Bay Area artists, working in a variety of styles and media. This show seeks to grapple with the life (and recent death) of the legendary recording artist, as well as the sci-fi, pop culture, and radical identity themes present throughout his oeuvre. This show will also feature a special musical performance by Lady Stardust, the California-based (almost) all-female David Bowie cover band.

My #Selfie, Myself: Disseminating the self-portrait one click at a time.

Group show of emerging bay area artists utilizing themselves as the subject of their work. Through painting, print and photography they will examine the current idea of ‘self’.

This show attempts to connect the introspective view of the artist’s intrinsic self.  Within the social construct of portraiture the gallery will be accompanied with an installation of selfies that viewers are encouraged to participate in. Through image and identity this show is set to explore the connection between the “selfie” within the context of traditional use of self-portraiture.
