DESCRIPTION

Gallery II

Megan Majewski returns to C.A.V.E. Gallery with new tales from her curiously bizarre underworld of the dead. For this exhibition, Majewski’s zombiesqe girls have morphed into peculiar human – animal hybrids as a result of centuries of exposure to a poisonous environment. With subjects that can be placed in the realm of Victor Van Dort and Beatleguese, Majewski has a clever – and often comical – talent of creating oddball creatures in which one can relate to their spidery souls and their trials and tribulations.

Megz got her start painting murals in her home-town of Cranbrook and soon after moved to Vancouver to attend Vancouver Film School to start a successful career as a Computer Graphics Animator.  ”Spook” Majewski’s student film has gone to many festivals including Annecy and was even used as the music video for Tunng’s song ‘Fair Doreen’.  She has worked in all areas of CG including films such as IRobot, television series such as Battlestar Galactica, and cartoons including Viva Pinata.

As much as she enjoys bringing life to characters on screen her true passion is painting those that inhabit a fantastical underworld.  Her first solo art show was an incredible accomplishment in which she successfully created 100 paintings in 100 days.  The positive response to her art, and selling 82 of the 100 paintings on opening night has inspired her to keep painting more ghoulish vixens and zombie-eyed sweethearts. “Apocalypse Forest” is Majewski’s third feature show with C.A.V.E. Gallery.
