Arcana Manager Russell Etchen's new 'zine produced to accompany his current exhibition at Bill Arning Exhibitions in Houston! Signed by the artist.
""Russell Etchen’s drawings, painting installations, and books originate in ’Zine culture, cartooning, graffito, rock and roll aesthetics, and his philosophical meditations on similarity, difference, repetition and reproduction. The repeated elements of counting, grouping, and sorting objects—whether they are Rocks or People—lend an oddly elegant and subtly humorous charm that belies the miasma commonly associated with monotony and repetition. Based in Los Angeles, Etchen was raised in Houston. This exhibition’s multi-scale mix of wall paintings and drawings marks the artist’s first Houston show since his widely reproduced and much loved public art installation at the Lawndale Art Center in 2016."
