For all you Durhamites, Kambui Olujimi has work up at Branch Gallery until the end of October. The rest of you can check his work out on his website. I like what he says about his cloud series:
The Clouds Are After Me explores the anxieties and phobias that permeate the public and private sectors of our lives and nation. Through a series of wanted posters picturing clouds as their perpetrators, I draw parallels to the “elusive”, “ever present dangers” which we are both running from and hunting for.
Ellie and I drew on ceramics from Thrift World with sharpies.
Thrift World used to be AN AMUSEMENT PARK!! Until it was recycled into a shopping center in the 1960′s.
In other, bigger NC art news, The Runny Bunny in Asheville makes these weird antique looking ceramics. She makes more delicate (and regular) birds and things, too, but thou knowest my tastes run toward the creepy. I get the feeling she has a good time making these.
