FREAKY BOUTIKI GALLERY will play host a most unusual show this autumn.

THE HEAD SCRATCHER:
Now, I'd scheduled a wierd group show for Christmas but the spirit of autumn was undeniable... what could I do? Monsters and zombies? Nahhhhh... like Robert Stack once said in Airplane when asked to turn on the runway lights, "That's just what they'll be expecting us to do."

INSPIRATION FROM BEYOND:
The answer came late one night when the Ghost of Alistair Crowley who lives under my bed told me I would be contacted shortly by an angel who looks like the Snow Meiser and a demon who looks like the Frito Bandito about an idea for an ass kicking Halloween show. I was assured by Crowley's ghost that while there have been many tarot shows presented by galleries around the wide wide world, ours would be the first to pair the undeniable forces of Tiki & Tarot.

Thus Freaky Boutiki Galleries second show...

Tikot! - Visions from the Tiki Tarot

THE MASTER PLAN:
This exhibition will focus on the Tarot's twenty two Major arcana portrayed in distinctive Tiki & Oceanic styles by twenty two of your favorite artists. Works will be executed using their favorite mediums both two dimentional and sculptural including mugs.
Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of TIKOT!
Cards should "Turn Up"(get it?) throughout October cuminating in a costumed celebration on All Hallows Eve featuring the entire major arcana!

THE COSMOS APPROVES:
In true Tarot fashion all artists have so far told me that the cards randomly drawn for them were those they would have chosen for themselves!





The Fool - Big Toe

The Magician - Brad Parker

The High Priestess - UlaFish

The Emperess - Eric October

The Emperor - Crazy Al Evans

The Hierophant - Erin Joy

The Lovers - Bowana David Lea

The Chariot - Tiki Racer

Justice - B. E. Boling

The Hermit - HodadHank

The Wheel - S. L. Grice

Strength - 4WD Bill Collins

The Hanged Man - Atomic Tony Tiki

Death - Clysdalle

Temperance - Heather Watts

The Devil - McEvoy & Rodriguez

The Tower - Babalu

The Star - Atomikitty

The Moon - Doug Horne

The Sun - Tiki Omar

Judgment - Kinny Ruzic

The World - Eric The Red




Note: The Show Poster was done by Kinny Ruzic who's great patiece w/ endless revisions was very much appreciated. Ain't it bitchin?

WOW! What a line up!

And WOW, what a great idea, Hank! Got my image all drawn out already, just need to transfer it to canvas and let the paint start flying!

Can't wait to see what all these stellar artists will create for this unique show!

Mahalo Hodaddy for such a brilliant concept!

Kenny, he never said if you use the Queens Scale colors or what. You may have to re-paint!

Who designs the back?

Here's a quick 'work in progress' for my card - the chariot



More detail and colour to add. The darker turtle will become black. Plus stars and moon to come.

Toe That fool is great! I love the dog biting his ass and how he's walking off a cliff!

Anyhoo heres my Hermit in progress, I must say anyone who knows me beyond a handshake will recognise this card as perfect for my current life situation. The universe working in mysterious ways perhaps.

Who knew a MUNKTIKI COCONUT BOWL could be a dispenser of such cosmic accuracy...

Thanks Spermy. This question has been raised a number of times and I shall consider it. It would be a great way to involve other artists who weren't included for one reason or another this time around. The short notice of the show for example excluded many who would have liked to participate. Thanks for the encouragement. FBG is a living breathing thing and I can see it evoling into gathering point for an international visual arts movement of like minded individuals not dissimilar to The Bauhaus.

Printing tarot cards? Sounds like a job for a print production manager. Gee, I wonder where we can find one? Hank, sending you a PM regarding this. Let's chat!
