OPENING EXHIBITION

AnarchoAnachro by Sternodox Keckhaver
Landing Gallery
Spam enthusiast, U.S. Air Force veteran, and photo-collage artist the Right Reverend Sternodox wages holy war on inter-dimensional reptiles, killer klowns, and the soul-sucking blandness of daily life. His fascinating collages are a reflection of what happens if you stay up too late, drink only air, and consume highly charged free radicals. Masquerading during the day as mild-mannered media editor Michael Keckhaver for the CALS Encyclopedia of Arkansas, Sternodox brings order to chaos by manipulating visual lines of thought and light pulled from the metaverse and tethers it to our reality.

Reverend Sternodox frequently wishes he could find 539 elderly men who have broken their noses, all of which healed at the same offset angle. He would then dress each man in a red felt tuxedo and deposit them on a square in a small town in middle America, in taxis, one every minute, until all 539 had been deposited on the square. They would have been instructed not to communicate with each other. After the men milled about for an hour, the taxis would pick them up, one by one, one each minute, until all were gone. No explanation would ever be given.
