Minefield Wonderland artist Matt Hodges (www.zemor.net) just slapped up a time-lapse of an artwork he’s displaying at our show!
So what are you waiting for?
FlavorPill were awesome enough to mention the show (which opens tomorrow) to the wide wide web audience. We really enjoyed their take on what we are trying to do with the show…
“With commercial or studio “day jobs” a renewed necessity of the current economy, many talented artists have been forced to stop work on their personal unfinished projects. Hold Up Art presents a group show of high-concept, lovingly prepped, midway masterpieces, which, despite its possible hopes for jump-starting them back to life, in its raw, open-ended state, is already its own reward.”
This is a great blurb for a different reason that the others we’ve mentioned that focus more on the comic-art angle for the show: each Minefield Wonderland artists involved with The Story Foreshadows is a working, professional artist. We are digital animators, storyboard artists, costume designers, video game developers, 2-d animators, drawing educators, interior designers, and 3-d renderers who all share a common interesting in fun and creative storytelling.
On that note, we actually finished hanging the gallery yesterday, and we can’t wait for you to come and see it for yourself!
Hey guys and gals! One of the artists, Matt Hodges, in our show did a slick-looking poster at his blog, Zemor.net. I say go there yourself and let him know how cool you know his art is. Because it is, and that’s why you’re coming to the show this Friday, right?
Here’s the official press release, for your viewing pleasure. Clearly, there will be more to come as time unravels itself

An interesting find, I want to be clear that Salvador Dali was actually more of a surrealist hype-man than an actual surrealist. In that way, he had more in common with dadaists or low-brow artists today than he did with people who are legitimate surrealists, since surrealists actually make paintings for themselves only.
Anyway, enough art theory. It’s pretty telling that Walt Disney wanted to work with Dali, it shows that he really appreciates the fine art world and that he was willing to give Dali the ability to let him mind kind of wander. It’s sort of like how Walt Disney hired Mary Blair or wanted to include more Tchaikovsky music into his scores.
It’s shocking the amazing stuff you find on youtube. Good thing we live in the age of technology!
