Candian-based illustrator and designer comes to Land for his American debut Friday, May 3rd, from 6-9pm.
“Doozy” is a collection of new work by Vancouver based Illustrator and Artist, Graeme Zirk.
Webster’s defines “Doozy” as “an extraordinary one of its kind” but present day vernacular would suggest otherwise.
It’s a once pleasant word that has been adapted for sarcastic, pejorative purposes. As a result, we’re left with a paradoxical turn of phrase that leaves us our own devices to determine whether something is great or godawful.
Graeme Zirk is interested in creating work with a sentiment and aesthetic that is hard to place. Pieces can feel both refined and flawed, pleasant and melancholic, bold and doubtful, direct and cryptic. Regardless of perception, the show promises to be a real doozy.
