LAUNCH LA is proud to present two solo exhibitions by recent graduates with Bombs Away by Thomas Dang and Compression View by Fleurette West.
In his exhibition, Dang melds impending horrid death and the beauty of the meticulously crafted object. Unseen skies rain down an arsenal of bomb pods. Their cargo: pathogenic organisms caught between B-movie horrors and swollen versions of the microbes which inhabit our bodies. The bombs possess an evolutionary diversity of cartoonish color and texture; almost harmlessly surreal and yet tinged by the baleful specter biological warfare. Without telling anyone what to think, Bombs Away brings violence and war to the home-front. Confrontation is not optional.
