The Artwork of Ben Thomas

 

STEP RIGHT UP! See the amazing Sideshow Spectacular going on at Kayo right now. Don't miss out on the wondrous curiosities and splendors. 

 

Kayo Gallery is opening "Sideshow," featuring new works by Gentry Blackburn, Ben Thomas and Pushy Galore. Kayo gallery owner Shilo Jackson says of the show: "I've always loved the mystique and curiosities around sideshows. It brings an element of kitsch and the strange about. Last year when I was booking shows for 2010, it was around the time the State Fair was going on. At the time, the sideshow was in jeopardy of going away. I thought it would be fun to do a show to immortalize it." Each artist has selected a specific subject to focus on.

 

The images in the gallery below are those of Ben Thomas.  Thomas has created the freakish aspect of the sideshow, from the two-headed cock to the Fiji mermaid.
