The Mondo Gallery, a permanent art space in Austin, Texas, features a curated mix of original artwork and limited edition screen prints and is welcoming some David Lynch inspired work.
A new exhibition is opening in time for the ever popular Austin’s SXSW Film Festival. ‘The Art of Greg Ruth – A Twin Peaks Interpretation‘ will see over 60 original prints inspired by David Lynch and Mark Frost’s Twin Peaks series.
“Twin Peaks changed everything in the spring of 1990, and I was mesmerised by its weekly soap-opera format and brilliant dance between mystery, comedy and romance and a kind of horror that had never before existed on the small screen,” said artist Greg Ruth. “It influenced a generation of admirers and later inspired me to use it as a short series of portraits of the various keys characters as I tested my new love of graphite work under the umbrella of my self-assigned weekly drawing series, The 52 Weeks Project.”
“It is a wellspring of totems, symbols, storytelling and character that is unmatched by any other contenders out there. Twin Peaks continues to be a deep inspiration for me personally, and it is nothing short of the most insanely fantastic honour imaginable to be able to launch this print series and gallery show. If I could only whisper in my ear 27 years ago with the promise of this…”
