GOD MUSE MONSTER- a solo show by J Fathom @ LITM Oct 4th
Not too shy to talk
Not too shy to talk

GOD MUSE MONSTER- new works by John Fathom

A solo exhibition exploring veneration and idolatry as well as the fine line between God & Monster when inspired by man expressed through a variety of mediums including the light box paintings he is known for but also utilizing silkscreen works, and toy sculptures as well.

Other themes interpreted are how we venerate our growing list of"New Age" ideas, and create a version of God in our own image as time passes through the frequent editing of historical facts and stories to fit the modern masses ideals or governing clergy.

"GOD MUSE MONSTER is my attempt at shifting the focus from Idolatry towards honoring the fundamental general laws that seem to guide our Universe. The bizarreness of nature being my muse and the Universal Laws manifesting themselves in all aspects of reality, albeit hidden in the energies of all actions and occurrences."

No worries. I just wanted to inform you that my illuminated works have no relevance to street art. Hardly even inspired by it although I also do street art of a very diff medium.

As for Indiviual exhibitions vs collective efforts...

My work in the BX is actually permanently custom designed into the interior of that venue. There are 10 pieces behind the bar 6pole pieces and 2 inbedded in the wall at the entrance.
I am also workin on pieces for a venue in Brooklyn. Bronx, Brooklyn & Miami as well as JC.

Thanx for your concern on the state of my career though. Helps me sleep better knowing there's someone out there that cares.

Hey, I would also include John Ruddy, Joe Russo and Robert Piersanti.
Piersanti= Pop

Regarding ROcksoup Studios. We throw parties here in JC b/c thats all JC wants. They have gallery shows all the time but if they come all the way out to our loft they EXPECT a party.
However we participate in Studio Tour Exhibitions like the one at CANCO and we've taken JC artists to Miami during Art Basel for the last 3 yrs.

Question regarding my standing on the map--somewhere between street and pop? Are you talking about my street art or my Illuminated paintings? My Illuminated paintings are more POP leaning towards academic. Whereas my Street art is just that.

Yeah its about putting into the collective pot so to speak. Originally it was about pooling all the resources and having everyone do an equal amt of work for the cause, but as artists arent always so motivated it became 2-5 people really working on getting everything going and then pooling a variety of talent together to put on some culturally diverse events and art spectacles during pertinent times. For instance we will be hosting a St VALENTINES DAY MASSACRE event at the ROCKSOUP LOFT. Stay tuned.

Is Rocksoup fulfilling its approach?? Not sure what that exactly means. What I can tell you is RS just came back from Art Basel where we did a small Art show. Not being an artist I can tell you that Art Basel is the biggest and possibly the most significant of the Art Fairs in and outside the U.S.
We were there last yr as well and our interest is in bringing outsiders into the artscene and bringing JC artist to other areas. We also curate a space in the south bronx where I have been mainly exhibiting JC artists.

Whats the concern? JC is nearly completely dependent on the artists for their nightlife and alternatives to the same ol bar scene. The real question is --What have the yuppies done for us lately is my question? ha! People start buying art and the scene gets better.

Re: What's worse for JC, Luxury Condos or Hipsters?

whats worse is people set on finding a group to hate on. Especially since neither are actually bad for a corrupt city filled with potholes and crime. Its a step up no matter how edgy and cool you think you are for living in a pre or post gentrified area.
Hipsters, yuppies, condos , artists whatever and whoever comes here are better then muggers, and theifs.
Lastly, haters of all kinds are worse then hipsters and their glasses tattoos and recycled clothes. Or did i make that point already. fIND SOMETHING WORTH COMPLAINING ABOUT, LIKE INCOME TAX OR STANDING AT A CONCERT AND BEING PEE'D ON.
