We just received this announcement from our friends at Analog Tattoo in San Francisco about their next art exhibit, this time featuring the amazingly talented Jim Minor. If you can make it, check out the exhibit. It’s sure to be superb!In this virtually empty & inhospitable universe where anything that does live will, after a beautifully brutish moment in time break down & disappear, we have a unique opportunity to understand & appreciate the beauty of the world around us. Even in the chaos of an indifferent existence, beautiful things exist so they can be witnessed and interpreted by the viewer.Jim Miner, an integral member of the Analog Tattoo Arts Kolectiv, has been a practicing tattooer for over seventeen years, the last ten of which has found him further integrating decorative & ornamental themes into his work, adding layer upon layer of beauty to tried & true designs. Jim is also an accomplished musician & his ability to combine musical & visual influences is immediately apparent to anyone familiar with his body of work.Inspired by Baroque & Victorian decorative styles, nature, travel & music, Jim’s works in watercolor & acrylic incorporate themes from the world of tattooing, attempting to elevate the visual & metaphorical imagery to another level of elegance. As Jim puts it “making things beautiful for no reason”. A simple reflection of the world itself, before this cycle ends & moves on to another state.For details about the March 14th, 2015 opening, click here.
