Giant Robot is proud to present Fearfully and Wonderfully, a group art show featuring the work of Sean Cassidy, Katherine Guillen, Zachary Rossman, and Brian Rush.

For the show, Sean Cassidy is preparing 10-20 small pieces that instill the effortless flow of the drawn line with the mystery of science. His deceptively straightforward paintings and sculptures balance the primal need for expression with an unstated but understood logic and cloud the boundaries of fact and fantasy.

Katherine Guillen uses watercolor, etching, and ceramics to “chronicle the hopeless state of the environment, and the darker side of humanity that it exposes.” Her translucent-but-dark hues depict subjects such as manual labor and bullies, as well as floods and other forms of nature in an unflinching, subtly humorous manner.

Zachary Rossman plans on painting about seven gouache-on-paper pieces, all of which will feature meticulous brushwork. Fixated on the unbreakable and often freakish relationship between humans and nature, his latest work suggests an obsessive fixation with caves, as well as mountains, black holes, icicles, botanical forms, and creatures.

Brian Rush will prepare 10-15 acrylic paintings that will feature cartoon-based characters and narratives, loosely held together by a non-linear storyline or idea. Although the subjects may be familiar, no single explanation is enforced upon the viewers, who are allowed to construct their own explanations of the accessible yet cryptic themes.

A reception for the artists will be held from 6:30 , 10:00 on Saturday, March 17. For more information about the show, the artists, GRSF, or Giant Robot magazine, please contact:
