“Many humans are curious. Curious about things that are deemed weird or different. Things that are exquisite yet grotesque. Things that are delicate yet sinister. Things we don’t always understand.
“Fantastic and Strange will explore the idea of the weird and wonderful, the eccentric and sensational. Art, ideas or items that are bizarre, eerie, mysterious, unconventional, supernatural or unexpected.
“Looking for artists of any discipline whose work falters between the odd and the beautiful, extravagant yet awkward. Works of art that both draw you in yet repel you or contradict in message, media or ideas.”
