"Schrödinger's Menagerie" at A. E. England Gallery
Daniel Funkhouser, a painting graduate from ASU, is known for his bright paintings, nude-and-luchador-mask exhibitions, and his band Treasure MammaL, in which he dances in a silver unitard.
Needless to say, this guy isn't shy. And his show won't be either.
Funkhouser explores alter egos, sexuality and dualities in his first venture as a curator for "Schrödinger's Menagerie" this month at the A.E. England Gallery with an opening reception this Friday night.
The work featured in the show -- including pieces by Andrew Hadle, Ingrid V. Wells and Angela Young -- challenges ideas of self image and traditional definitions of art and media.
Funkhouser says "Schrödinger's Menagerie" is a reference to Erwin Schrodinger's cat experiment, which suggested that two ideas can be contradictory but exist at the same time.
It'll be darker and sexier than what you'd expect from a typical Funkhouser show, he says.
