ABOUT THE SHOW
The internet, pop culture, and conspiracy theories. Familiar images reappropriated and collaged into collections of contemporary cave-like drawings— primitive, yet well crafted in their own right. Snapshots from a distant 90s, strange internet finds, and B horror film moments are juxtapozed to create new narratives that satisfy our nostalgic palette. J.L. Coffinwashers works will make you smile, laugh, cry and probably a little scared, all at the same time.
