Instead of presenting my art, Id rather inflict it, Creech says, adding that hes completely comfortable with it. Taking familiar things out of context or isolating parts of a whole so that they're almost, but not quite recognizable, disorients people, and reactions to that are sometimes adverse. Good.
Get a feel for just how twisted DD Creech -- or his photography is, at Darker Deeper Subjects, which opens at 7 p.m. and runs for just one night at Color & Light Gallery, 1422 East 22nd Avenue; admission is free. Creechs work will be accompanied by that of illustrator Robert Elrod, painter Ryan Napier and photographer Kate Pardun. Gallery owner Terri Clauss explains that the disturbing show will only be up for one night because Color and Light typically displays folk art and a lot of bright colors.
