Next Day Flyer Presents: Seeing The Black Dog

 

Michael Massaia’s haunting new series Seeing The Black Dog is based on a saying truck drivers use to describe hallucinations that occur as a result of sleep deprivation during cross country runs.  When they see the “black dogs” scampering across the highway they know to pull over and get some sleep.   The moment they make that decision is when Michael sneeks up to their trucks while they’re in the cabs sleeping and captures the moment the dogs melt away (it’s also the moment Michael tries not to get his ass shot off).  All of the images were taken between the hours of 2am and 6am along the New Jersey Turnpike.

 

Today’s article is brought to you by the rack card printing company offering quick turnaround times and great prices, Next Day Flyers.

Stephen Mattheu Booth

 

Stephen Mattheu Booth knows how to make a character worth remembering. I can’t say exactly what it is I enjoy about his characters, but they all just seem like they would be awesome to hang around with, and even his abstractions retain this figurative charm. I’ve always had an appreciation for this manner of art in which one can imagine the artist making these awesome drawings on a couch, or in bed, or at a bar, all without having to go to a studio and worshiping an easel, or using some computer tool to clean up his lines. It just feels right. And fortunately, he doesn’t draw fan artish mutated forms of Spongebob or Mickey Mouse, but instead, his work seems to sprout (growth being important here) from characters like Slimer, Donald Duck, Pluto, and other childhood favorites. How could you look at that #$!@*☁ duck and not smile?

The Ink of Liz Harris

Most know Liz Harris as the wonderfully effecting ambient/drone project that is Grouper, but the Portland artist has steadily begun to bring her visual work to the public as well. It makes sense that the source of Grouper’s haunting, rhythmic drive would also produce these meticulous, ghostly patterns and figures. Employing ink on paper, Harris provides images that suck the viewer into her world and spit them back out as quickly as they came. These drawings and prints on paper are concentrated visual doses of a Grouper album’s sonic power, yet maintain a presence all their own. It is clear that Harris has one vision, and is skilled enough to express this (strong) artistic inclination within multiple forms.

Aurelia Friedland (B/D feature), and Matt Manos (Book 1, Future Perfect, and B/D feature).
