Just Add Monsters
Thrift stores and flea markets ususally carry an abundance of old, indistinct landscape paintings – remnants from hotel-room walls and boarded-up freeway diners. They are frequently passed over and forgotten but at least one artist has found something creative to do with them. Thyrza Segal, a painter herself, adds her own imaginary creatures to the scenes, livening up the otherwise drab canvases with startling monsters cavorting happily amid the painterly settings. The effect is startling and quite funny! Since Halloween is this week, I had to share these monster mash-ups with you. I hope you all have a fun and safe Halloween!
