"The Mechanics Of Seduction" The Solo show of Glenn Arthur This Saturday

"The Mechanics of Seduction"
The Solo Show of Glenn Arthur

Reception: Saturday, October 22nd, from 8-11pm

With Special Musical Performance by MATEO MONK

Glenn Arthur's "The Mechanics Of Seduction" is a series of paintings exploring the fascination, power and sensuality found within the human machine. Inspired by an era defined by industrial enlightenment and artistic innovation, Glenn fuses together a fanciful blend of elaborate and historical aesthetics. Each delicately painted female entices the viewer through mechanical elements while alluring them with hypnotic beauty into a world of ornate elegance wrapped in a cloak of disquieting surrealism. The juxtaposition of organic emotion and unfeeling apparatus demonstrates the unyielding, seductive romance between human and machine reminding us of the inherent desires that fuel us all.

Glenn Arthur is a self taught visual artist from Orange County, California. Glenn has been diligently working on creating his own brand of beautifully painted images. Using acrylic paints on wooden panels, he adds in elements and influential symbols of his past and present to each piece.  Touching on themes of love, death, conflict and duality, Glenn’s art tells stories of strength and hope through emotion and sentiment with his sensual beauties and signature hummingbirds.
