Julia deVille and William Llewellyn Griffiths: The Exhibition!

It's not so often that I quote Edgar Allan Poe. That is, unless you count my midnightly ritual of slipping out to the local cemetery and raising the occupants with a rousing Cockney knees-up recitation of 'The Raven', thus:

Then this ebony bird beguiling my sad fancy into smiling,
By the grave and stern decorum of the countenance it wore,
'Though thy crest be shorn and shaven, thou,' I said, 'art sure no craven.
Ghastly grim and ancient raven wandering from the nightly shore --
Tell me what thy lordly name is on the Night's Plutonian shore!'
Quoth the raven, 'Nevermore.'

So anyway, this brings to mind an upcoming joint exhibition by Melbourne-based artists Julia deVille and William Llewellyn Griffiths at the Sophie Gannon Gallery from 28 July to 21 August. Both artists are well known for their exquisitely delicate interpretations of all things creepy, kooky, mysterious and spooky.

Check these tiny critters a-glitter beyond this mortal coil in marcasite, diamonds, silver and gold.

William Llewellyn Griffith's 'A Deus Ex Machina':






And, if a distraught young urchin child happens to tug at your shirt-sleeve and yowl: "But why isn't Angelina Ballerina dancing?" you are soooooo of the hook, Jimmy!

The little mousies are en pointe in a diorama driven by gears!

Where is it again?

And when did you say?

And, as they say in the taxidermy biz: GET THERE OR GET STUFFED!
