Fiery Tails by Jason Howe

From the profuse scratchings in his sketchbooks, Sydney-based fine artist Jason Howe has created a new series of original and organic characters scribbled from the subconscious.

Fiery Tails, on exhibition at Monstrosity Gallery from 26 May 2011, places these characters in a mythology of otherworldly landscapes and parables.

Jason’s cosmic creations produce a hallucinatory vision of escapism. Through their colour, movement and surreal narratives, his work evokes a journey back to one’s youth, where vibrant and sometimes violent action-packed cartoons could make you belch your breakfast cereal.

Taking his influences from animations remembered from childhood, his work is infused with an obvious love of the natural world, its history & evolution along with sci-fi and the mysteries of the cosmos.

Jason’s exotic canvas, paper, wood and clay pieces bring to mind children’s stories filled with curious beings and lands. Sometimes reminiscent of fairytales or warped daydreams, each piece transports you to a magical, idealised and extremely happy place.

Jason will be celebrating the opening of Fiery Tails at Monstrosity Gallery, 93 Bourke Street Woolloomooloo, until Wednesday 15th June 2011.
