Aloha all!

Freaky Boutiki Gallery is proud to host Tiki Magazine's fourth annual Tiki Island art show. This year's loosely themed group show is titled BEYOND THE REEF.


In Contrast to the rigidly themed TIKOT! exhibit last Autumn, BEYOND THE REEF intentionally strives to allow the artist freedom to imagine anything the phrase could possibly conjure: Dark seas off the coast of a sleepy island, colorful creatures of the deep, surfside watering holes where tikis and wahine cavort, the diaspora of pacific carving cultures, surfers finding fleeting nirvana in the green room or even merely the lyrics of our favorite Jack Pitman tune.

And we've assembled a crackerjack lineup of artists to participate including...

Bosko
Thor
Robb Hamel
Eric October
Ken Pleasant
Doug Horne
Congatiki
McEvoy & Rodriguez
Sam Gambino
Brad Parker
Big Toe
Erin joy
Derek Yaniger
Meiko
Hodaddy & Wild Bill Collins
Ken Ruzic
Tiki Omar


...and more!

We hope you will visit BEYOND THE REEF and support your tiki arts community with a memorable purchase for your collection.


"Comercial Iniquity" by McAvoy & Rodriguez $2380.00

So today i checked out the "soft opening' of the TIKI ISLAND 4: BEYOND THE REEF group art show at FREAKY BOUTIKI GALLERY and below is my official report, complete with bad iphone photos:

My humble offering for the show, "Green Siren"



Bosko's maddeningly cool mask



One of a couple solid Doughornes:



from the fertile mind of Eric October:



Cool tiki by Hauoli...the surface is sooo luminous!:



some sort of possessed "lilo" by the dynamic duo, McEvoy-Rodriguez:



2 amazing black velvets by the indefatigable Robb Hamel. Photos dont do these rich paintings justice:





awesome Doomed crew in a carved serpent frame by The Ruzic:



Strange but beautiful octopus fetish by Eric Joy:



Killer collab by 4 Wheel Drive Tiki and the Hodad:



Another offering by the Ruzic:



Heather Watts always pleases:



Amazing Bay Park Buzzy offering:



Sam Gam totally rules. sorry about the bad lighting:



Oh wait, MP rules too:



G-Rod in full effect with one of his Mac-Rod 'hook-ups':



The mysterious BigToe conjures some flimflamery:



LOVE the drop-knee action on Erin Joys "Cross-stepper":



groovy gremmies:



The elusive Mission Bay Yeti displays another BigToe offering:



last but not least, a bad photo of the gorgeous Derik Yaniger in the shop window.



The painting are available NOW thru Tiki Oasis in August. contact Hodad Hank for availability and price at (858)488-4924!

Alohas, Uncle Toes

Thanks for the photos Big Toe, great for some of us folks who can't
get to San Diego right now. And thanks Hodadhank for allowing me to be
a part of this show.
Toe's picture of "cool tiki by ?" is none other than my old friend
"Hauoli" from last summer.

Looks like a great collection of tiki and oceanic art, thanks Hank!

Tiki Omar works a new Tangaroa mask in front of the gallery the day of the show openning. As usual attracting attractive onlookers!

____________


As well as being one of the genre's most recognizable designers and sculptors Bosko Hrnjak is a mentor from whom I have learned much in my own journey from professional illustrator to tiki carver. Beginning in the early 90's Bosko was a pioneer of the modernist tiki revival and remains among a handful of carvers noted frequently as inspiration for hundreds of neo-revivalist artists working around the globe. FBG is proud to offer one of a series of new PNG inspired shields that have held Bosko's attention of late.

Eric October is a crafty fellow. One need only peruse his diverse thread on this forum to recognize that a sly but good natured sense of humor breaths life to his varied works.
Whatever the medium, his playful expression is always a distillation of simple elements creating works simultaneously direct and disarming. Eric turned to the Pitman lyrics for his BEYOND THE REEF painting. A lovesick Tangaroa sends a thousand leis across the seas to his hearts desire as seagulls gather perhaps in consolation.
The works title is an Italian glass folding technique meaning "A Thousand Flowers". (Appropriate also for a gallery that once a showcased some of the countries finest independent glassblowers!)

Millefiori

$350



Aloha Hodaddy! Wow, you're good! That's totally the connection of this painting (and its frame) to the theme of the show! I was going to post describing it sooner, but my life has pretty much gone kablooey in the past few months, and I haven't had a chance to post much on TC lately.

There's a line in the song that goes "I'll send a thousand flowers where the tradewinds blow". I happened to stumble upon the millefiori technique while wondering what I was going to do for the show, and as soon as I read that millefiori translates to a thousand flowers this idea leapt fully formed from my brain (not unlike Athena being born from Zeus's aching head). Since I don't actually know any glass making techniques, I used colored sculpey instead for a bastardized version of millefiori and made little tapa flowers to wreath the painting.

I thought it might be sad to see a lonely tiki out on a reef, so I painted in some seagull friends to keep him company!

Here's a close up of the frame detail:
