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. 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. Large scale pieces from the renowned tattooer 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.
