The Year of the Wolfbat has trekked across the country since first opening in New York in June. Stops in San Francisco (Fecal Face) and Los Angeles (Thinkspace Gallery) set up the final showing, opening tomorrow night at Philadelphia’s Space 1026.
The exhibition features the a multimedia installation driven by woodcut. From the sculpture to the large wall murals, all the pieces begin with Dennis McNett’s core interest – the woodcut. The result is an enveloping series of creatures and landscapes pulled from McNett’s own interest in myth and, of course, the Wolfbat.
McNett was nice enough to take time out during installation this afternoon to give me a tour. Look for a full profile of the artist in the coming days over on Highsnobiety, until then head to the jump to preview The Year of the Wolfbat.
