Dr. Flotsam & The Carny Bastards | A solo exhibition by Mike Shine in the 2nd St Gallery
Mike Shine is a Bay Area artist who creates paintings, installations and performances that involve the viewer as participant. His influences have been described as “Nordic mythology, Teutonic philosophy, Kubrick, PT Barnum, Absinthe, and his wife.” At the center of his installations stands Pyotr Flotsam, the dark, enigmatic, Mephistophelean ringleader, who seems to be collecting souls in exchange for fulfilling dreams. His show at 111 Minna will explore the characters that surround Flotsam in his travels; The Carny Bastards. Spanning centuries and geographies, the ragtag collection of souls are a mix of gods and mortals, beauty and beasts.
