Fri-April1-LaLuzDeJesuse-Eichelberger BrucifixionSee image:  Bruce Eichelberger, Brucifixion

Bruce Eichelberger combines techniques of sculpting and pyrography, and has produced incredibly detailed pieces from objects as disparate as guitars and human skulls. The hours poured into such pieces are indicative of the artist’s commitment to quality, and his yield is endowed with an ability scarcely seen in untrained work. Bruce’s life story is one of personal triumph over tragedy-an inspiring tale of redemption that evidences greatness in the classical, visionary tradition. His drawings have been showcased in the Harwood Museum in Taos, New Mexico, and Le Halle St. Pierre in Paris, France, and can be found in some of the most important collections of self-taught art in the world.

Like another famous and similarly named artist, Krystopher Sapp works primarily in assemblage. Each has been at it for about the same amount time, and their matching first names (and unusual spellings of each) are one of the great coincidences of the contemporary Post-Pop art world. Sapp’s work is much more dangerous. Krystopher Sapp grew up in a household of memorabilia. His father has been a respected collector and dealer of movie goods for decades and his mother is one of the very few restorers trusted by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences. As one might expect, his knowledge of classic film runs deep and his lexicon is large. The Great American Horror Show is a tribute to his favorite films from his favorite genre, and avoiding cliché has become his trademark.
