If you go down to the woods today, you’re sure of a nasty surprise if artist Stacey Rozich‘s latest collection is anything to go by. The American may have eaten something she shouldn’t have in creating Within Without Me, her re-examination of folk myths and their power to explain, unsettle, and generally scare children half to death. Instead of picnicking teddy bears or hookah-puffing caterpillars, Rozich leads us into a world of animal-headed miscreants; her sharp, angular style perfectly suits the rather prickly modernisation of some old wives tales, and the forest relocation provides a colourful counterpoint to the urban menace of her situations. Motifs from international cultures also make an appearance, for example in the intricate embroidery of her craps-playing Bad Dudes’ costumes.

The Roq La Rue gallery, which any art-conscious Seattleite will tell you has moved to a spot on Pioneer Square, is hosting Rozich’s collection until 1st June, or you can see it all online (and buy the works as well) on the gallery’s exhibition mini-site.
