Steve Murison

At first, seeing Steve Murison art, you think "awwww, look at the pretty little kitty" but then the kitty swipes your ear off. Over and over, Murison's art stares at you daring to come off the flat plane of it's existence. Running away without reason, you'll find yourself swinging your neck around to keep looking at the pretty colors and simple lines but he's fooling you. Keep running.
I don't usually include the titles but most of them are unusual in this way; they are the paintings talking to Murison, not you. They are for him, not us. I think. I'm excited to watch as these creations come to life over time as Murison is just getting his feet under him in late 2012. And those feet are bringing the rest of his frame outside, in the good of life.

YOUR CAT WAS SICK AT THE DISCO
blacvkened bones from fire, green lungs from decay
encased in frost under bitter sky

your satanic lizard hand puppet is sick
your goat was sick at the party again
your withered heart lays root in undeath
your pet's remains have been removed from the casket
your demon has a toothache
your demon still has toothache
