Of Cabbages & Kings: Brian McGuffey

25 Jun

When I was a little girl, I spent many nights at my grandparent’s house.  Before bed, my brother & I would curl up with my Mimi while she read to us from a book of fairytales.  The fanciful and fantastic stories fed and fueled my imagination.  Seattle artist Brian McGuffey’s work reminds me of the imaginary worlds I would dream of when I drifted off to sleep, my grandmother’s voice still in my ears.

Pleased to Meet You

A world in which a horse’s head could talk, princesses danced all night in a secret castle and magic beans lead to adventure and riches.

More Sugar in My Bowl

McGuffey’s use of muted palettes and layered textures give his work a wonderful, dreamlike atmosphere.  And of course, where else but in our dreams do deer wear dresses and mountain goats sport top hats?
