Arik Roper is the man. His work has blessed many album covers from many many great bands over the years; Sleep and High on Fire are just a few. He’s having an opening event at Fuse Gallery this weekend. Here’s a few of the pieces that will be on display. I’ll be there!
Brimming with delicate, surreal imagery, Arik Roper’s The Hidden Dimension examines alternate states of being that exist within and beyond everyday awareness. These realms unfold as everyday consciousness is interrupted through dreams or other capacities. Exploring these transcendent elements, Roper’s paintings and drawings feature epic landscapes of the mind, natural artifacts from the past and future and other cerebral peculiarities.
