GMO/OMG at Antler Gallery

GMO/OMG
Works by John Casey

Show runs 5/30 – 6/24/19

Antler Gallery in Portland, OR presents “GMO/OMG”, Works by John Casey. This show features surreal drawings and sculptures by the Oakland-based artist. John will be showcasing his oddball and absurd creations of genetically modified organisms. Humankind has been altering plants, animals and itself since emerging out of the primordial ooze. Now, as the world stands on the precipice of environmental collapse, our ever-inventive species will continue to modify the world for both survival and for entertainment and distraction (note various breeds of toy dogs). And we modify ourselves, physically and psychologically, in a godlike attempt to adapt to human-made environmental and societal chaos. The results are ridiculous creations, a form of art in a brave new world. Not just genetically modified, but giddily, goofily, and gorgeously modified.
