Uma Gallery, Exhibition – Dickens 44: Recycledelic Fusion
April 7 @ 12:00 pm - May 13 @ 6:00 pm
After living abroad in Asia and Central America for over four decades, Dickens 44 Bascom, whose creations made him a counter culture celebrity in the 1960’s and 70’s is coming to UMA Gallery! “Recycledelic” his term for mosaic and fusion pieces created from thousands of various found and salvaged objects resulting in a kaleidoscopic delight for the eyes.
Seventy nine and going strong, Dickens creates his art daily, juxtaposing universal queries with contemporary absurdities. His piece Big Pharma, a serving platter with the head of an Ultraman looking alien surrounded by pills of every color and shape is but one of many examples. Mayan ATM Temple is another example. A fusion of paint and found objects, this piece screams money is god as it depicts an ATM machine with guards planked on either side on top of a Mayan Temple. At first glance the show looks like candy land, look closer and you’ll find the gems and wisdom within.
