"The idea for this collaboration with Raeleen Kao began when Raeleen and I joked about how most of her work revolved around hair while most of the characters in my work were bald. Seemed like a perfect reason to collaborate. I suggested that she do a number of hair drawings sans figures, empty wigs essentially, and I would react to what she had drawn by adding figures."

Beautifully executed, Fred Stonehouse‘s work expresses his personal psychology and dreamlike vision as influenced by Renaissance painting, folklore, magic realism, and the unseen mysteries which abound in the world. In this exhibition Stonehouse delves deeper into the metaphor behind his crossbred animal paintings. Working from a biblical vision of harmony between all earthly creatures, Stonehouse’ new work strives to capture the realistic consequences of such unlikely animal pairings.
The Gallery’s exhibition runs concurrently with the Fred Stonehouse exhibition at the museum of Wisconsin Art (MOWA). Read More

Curated by Fred Stonehouse
The heraldic nature of tattoos has historically tied its imagery to the symbolism of animals. If one could argue that tattoos constitute a sort of “psychic armor” then this imagery and symbolism seems to make complete sense and the pervasiveness of it in tattoo design is understandable. Of course, artists are drawn to animal imagery for a host of reasons, but for this exhibition we decided to focus on animal imagery in the art of tattooists and other artists as a way to think about the possible correlations and overlaps between related practices.
This exhibition will bring together the work of a diverse group of artists, linked primarily by the fact (other than the common subject matter) that I know them all. Large scale pieces from the renowned tattooer Don Ed Hardy, the exquisite hand-colored etchings of Briony Morrow Cribbs, the boldly graphic paintings of New York tattooist Bert Krak and the Japanese inflected works of Milwaukee’s own Jon Reiter will all be part of the mix. – Fred Stonehouse Read More
