Curiosity Killed Some Time

Imma dig deeper on this, but you might as well be looking at it while I do so. Just clicked around a bit after seeing this on sweet Booooooom! and didn’t find much, at least not instantly. Part of my problem will be that I am seeking not just biographical information, but commentary on ideas like “how is he incorporating so much death and doom imagery without invoking goth?” Will tweet any progress.

Till Gerhard – BOOOOOOOM! – CREATE INSPIRE COMMUNITY ART DESIGN MUSIC FILM PHOTO PROJECTS.

Progress! And sure you don’t all tweet, didn’t mean to sound coercive, so here’s the 411: Saatchi has a selection of Gerhard’s works online, each with enjoyable and thought provoking commentary. The Loyal still has a 2008 show up with a statement. And if you travel back in web time to 2006, David Marcus will answer all of your questions in a most satisfying piece for The Brooklyn Rail.
