Chris “The Creep” Densmore opened his latest solo show “Sideshow” at the Hyaena Gallery this past February 16th. With this new series of works Chris hopes “to show that whether a â€œborn-freakâ€ or a â€œmade-freak,” these are ultimately portraits of people, and not so different from the audience that remains fascinated with them.” It’s a great idea for a show, and while many artists use sideshow “freaks” as inspiration, few tackle the imagery with respect as Chris has done so here. The portraits are well done, and most importantly classy. John Merrick, Bill Durks, and even some great little “golden age” cartoons can be found at the show. Take a look at the Hyaena Gallery’s Facebook for some photos of the reception night (Here).
