Project 165 is pleased to announce Lost Boys: 2, an exhibition of psychedelic-drawings-as-urban-sorecery and the launch of a new two-faced art-zine by emergent Canadian artists Ryan Solski and Dan Rocca. Curated by Ryan Ringer, this exhibition explores recent tectonic trips into the tensile cartography of the scribbling duo's sacred psychedelia.
Ryan Solski and Dan Rocca have been living as Lost Boys since the summer of 2004, when a mystical romp in the woods of Bruce County, Ontario, lead them down a perceptual rabbit hole to a virtual Never-Never-Land of infinite creativity - an immersive world akin to Simon's Land of Chalk Drawing - where so called reality and unreality, dreams and everyday life, converge and become a fluid realm of imagination.
And there they have remained, as if fully awake in a dream, waxing the absurd lexicon of Lost Boys through active imagineering. By way of dream-travel to the far recesses of their unconscious, they have produced a prodigious compendium of book-works, drawings, paintings, sculptures and performance-installations.
Lost Boys: 2 is a whimsical tour of mini-mapquests, absurd narratives, mind-bending mythologies, bugged-out comicbook characters and imaginary landscapes. These works provide intriguing insight into the world of Lost Boys.
