Larkin Cypher

Larkin summons the creatures of land, sea, air and imagination to populate the tenebrous landscape of the mind’s deepest craters and outer reaches. Chimeras, Gorgons, deities, rabbits, and other creatures combine with human elements to inhabit a world of dreams and nightmares. Personally symbolic and infused with dark whimsy, his creations frighten and delight. He works in mixed media, combining acrylic painting with sculptural inclusions, found objects, and fiber techniques. His two dimensional works are complemented by borders of crocheted materials worked around or into the surface of each piece. His style amalgamates surreal peculiarity with Victorian aesthetics.
