Sacramento's premiere alt-sider gallery the TOYROOM will be presenting one hell of a show this June,
when the art will be as warped as the heatwaves bouncing off the central valley blacktop!
"Vise Grip" features John Bell, Mike Bell (related only in twistedness), Bruce Gossett, Kepi, and Rob Struven,
a quasi-quintet (obviously one can short of a six-pack!) with five one-track minds: Create! Create!
Like a whacked-out tribe of Dr. Frankensteins, these artists are obsessed with bringing their visions to life:
Hot Rods, VooDoo, Cussed-Dumb Culture, the dark side of Pop Culture... you name it, they'll mame it!
In the grip of their own vices, share the madness with a friend as you creep past the color, darkness,
shadow and light that these five have presented, then pass your own judgement...innocent or guilty?
Crazy or connected? No one can tell, and that's the fun!
From the hot dirty race track to the seedy underbelly of society, from bad TV to even worse movies,
it's the art of it all at the heart of it all that provides the motivation for these jerks-of-all-trades, and the inspiration
springs (super?)naturally from the five wise guys to whom no rule applies! VISE GRIP...grab on to it!
