“In this world, a boy sits in his newly demolished home, dreaming of his escape. Messenger candles from the Baron dot the land. Good fruits accompany moths and butterflies, while snowmen befriend various birds and creatures from the menagerie of Simkins’ imagination. The alchemist’s eggs appear as vessels containing new life spilling out of their cracked surfaces, while clouds containing the secrets of time’s past fill the sky.”
This is the first stage of the exhibition. “It Wanders West” opens November 6th at Gallery Nineteen Eighty Eight in LA.
