NM – Full Disclosure/Perfect Machine

Press Release:

Stranger Factory is thrilled to present two new exhibits for February from artists Phil Noto and Jim Mahfood.

Phil Noto’s “Full Disclosure” finds Noto’s signature style in top form, as the artist deftly brings beautiful new characters to life. Few artists are able to capture the subtleties of Full Disclosureuman expressions like Noto, and it’s impossible to look at his works without being drawn in immediately. Beautiful understatement is the name of the game with Noto’s work, from a slightly raised eyebrow to the tiniest of smirks. We are huge fans of Noto’s paintings, and thrilled to be able to present another solo show by this modern master.

In the Project Room we have the frenetic illustration style of Jim Mahfood. His new exhibit, “Perfect Machine”, brings to Stranger Factory an exploration of sense and sensuality couched in his trademark chaotic style…heaps of black ink seem to explode within and around his subjects as they struggle for a handhold in an unsure world. Mahfood’s illustration style is dense and rich, and carries an intense load of sex, comedy, and violence.
