Exhibit continues until February 26th. Zombies traverse snow mountain forests, circus freaks drink cheap liquor in the backs of rusty circus caravans, sexually augmented serial killers get resurrected by drunk space aliens, Hoss Cartwright kills Vampires in an ancient sunless valley, a devil rabbit hunts an evil puppet in the apocalyptic city of Detroit. Welcome to Bubba Town. The home of songwriter and visual artist Troy Bubba Cook. From his compound beneath the Rocky Mountains, he produces a vast array of songs, art, film, theatre, and writing.
Troy’s current work revolves around a vocabulary of themes he has developed over the last several years incorporating words into the works as a counterpoint or to accentuate the function of what is occurring in the work.The pieces have been developed around levels of technique. Going from detail to a more instinctual approach. Troy has been fascinated with themes varying from Delta Blues music, boxing, the downtrodden aliens to his usual themes.
