Craig Drake Solo Show Set to Debut Tomorrow
Over a month ago, Hero Complex Gallery announced that they would be hosting a Craig Drake solo show in April. Except for the above image of Ygritte from Game of Thrones, we haven't seen much of anything from the show. And now we know why.
As Hero Complex explains:
"We have decided not to reveal any full previews for this show because we want you to experience it in full, in person, it really is a sight to behold, BUT the tease below and the image diagram below that should give you a few hints as to what to expect, along with an idea on the number of pieces in the show.Craig has been working day and night, and every piece in this show far surpassed even our loftiest expectations of what he might create for the show. We cannot wait for you to see it in its entirety and for your opportunity to meet Craig in person!"
The images referred to in the email are above and below, but they are mere glimpses of pieces to be displayed. While it's an odd strategy, it does speak volumes about HCG's confidence in Craig's work.
In terms of what kinds of pieces will be at the show, HCG has revealed that there will be Limited Edition Screen Prints with metallic inks, 60x40 metals, 36x24 metals and 24x36 woods . The show will open tomorrow at 4PM, and will presumably go online sometime on Saturday afternoon. To all those going, enjoy!
