// “Get Ready, Jungle Heat” New Drawings by Steak Mtn.
“With “GET READY, JUNGLE HEAT.”, Norris/Steak aims to aggressively explore the role of the mouth in human sexuality; correlating the moist humidity of men and women’s mouths to that of the wet heat of a jungle. Using a visceral, inkblot-drawing style influenced by Jean Cocteau, Allen Jones and the early commercial work of Andy Warhol, Norris/Steak delicately abstracts his compositions. He softens the seamy subject matter for the viewers’ gaze, coaxing them to examine in detail something that would perhaps normally make them uncomfortable.”
Okay. Lots of rad shit is happening here. Steak’s drawings have a wonderful storybook quality to them that adds tension and je ne sais quoi to the sordid subject matter. Beach London is an amazing art gallery complete with a print shop offering exclusive prints, zines, and artist books. And they have a Café upstairs, so there’s simply no excuse for you to leave. In conjunction with GRJH, Steak Mtn. has also collaborated with Beach London on a limited-edition scarf to effectively display your misanthropic disposition without saying a word.
