Anatofantastic – My art exhibition!

by justinemendoza

Man-oh-man! Life has been busy. Last month (actually, almost two months ago) was the opening of my art show Anatofantastic at Zughaus Gallery in Berkeley. I was inspired by that one Magic School Bus episode in which they shrink down and travel through Carlos’ (or maybe Arnold’s) body with a good hefty dose of Wes Anderson’s The Life Aquatic (which is in turn inspired by Jacque Custeau).

Steve and Mario played some amazing looped ambient electronic music for the show.

Here are some photographs of the event and my pieces:


A wall of acrylic cellular structures and LED synapses.




Here are some close-up shots of the layered wooden wall sculptures. Each board was painted then glued together in a stack and compressed until it became one solid piece.

All pieces were laser cut at Techshop SF!
