He of the endlessly imaginative and curious creatures, Alex Pardee, has opened his new Alex in Shunderland 4-day solo with Spoke Art at a Santa Monica Popup location. Featuring over 70 pieces, the new collection is exploration of Shunderland, a wondrous place Pardee created as an escape from the anxiety and deep depression that he’s lived with from a young age. The neon-tinged world is home to Pardee’s dear friends: Otis, Gumby, The Amazing Benathan, ShunderHand and arch nemesis Gordo. Experience Shunderland through a series of acrylic on canvas paintings, works on paper, and a neon pink ShunderHand sculpture. Learn more about Shunderland and its personal importance in Pardee’s own words.
“Shunderland, Shunderland, take me away, To the place in-between where the Brightmares all play.” – Alex Pardee
