Horrible Adorables’ “MATRIARCHY” Solo Show launched July 7th @ Stranger Factory (Exhibits thru July 30.2017)
“MATRIARCHY” is the name of Horrible Adorables’ solo show @ Stranger Factory (in Project Room) launched July 7th. Scroll thru for a select few images of the gallery show, and head to circusposterus.com now to view artwork available for your purchasing pleasures!
I am utterly enjoying the theme for this show - where previous releases focused on the creatures themselves - this time the creatures are part of a eco-system created to represent “Matriarchy” of “Royalty”, giving said creatures a further depth in their “character(s)”, besides their material make, IMHO.
Horrible Adoribles’ “MATRIARCHY” is exhibiting alongside Lana Crook’s “A MEMORY”, and exhibits thru July 30, 2017

"Horrible Adorables current body of work depicts matriarchal societies in the form of anthropomorphized creatures. It shows the social dynamics between royalty and their subjects; from those loyally serving their ruler to the fate of doomed queens after a revolt. Our hybrid creature interpretations are loosely based on matriarchies in the animal kingdom, where females reign supreme."
ARTIST BIOS: "Horrible Adorables are the creations of Jordan Elise Perme and Christopher Lees; a wife and husband team from Cleveland, Ohio. They met at the Cleveland Institute of Art where Jordan graduated with her BFA in Fiber & Material Studies, and Chris was pursuing training in fine arts after completing his BS in Mechanical Engineering.
Jordan and Chris bring their soft sculptures to life by meticulously arranging patterns of felt scales onto hard carved forms. The resulting characters have qualities that are both cartoonish and eerily realistic at the same time. Horrible Adorables are strange hybrid creatures from a fantastical word. Their facial expressions and postures reveal recognizably human emotions as they interact with one another. Horrible Adorables can be found online and at indie craft fairs, galleries, and boutiques across the globe.
In addition to Horrible Adorables, Jordan also works as a freelance toy and textile designer. She has proudly worked for companies such as Little Tikes, Hasbro and Joann Fabrics."
Thank you all for the kind comments and overall amazing response to the flying whale we posted yesterday. Here's a photo of Chris with a couple for scale. He was truly the driving force behind this grouping, and I'm so lucky to have such a talented and imaginative partner as him! The 'Grande Dame' is a massive size and there's also 4 smaller whales available. Online sales for 'Matriarchy' open tomorrow on the @strangerfactory website.
