James Marshall aka “Dalek” along with Hurley are excited to present the art exhibitions titled “PSYCH OPTIC BLACK LIGHT FUZZ.” For over 18 months artist James Marshall has been a creative partner with Hurley exploring the concept of innovation, dimensionality, color and the power of free creativity through community. The exhibition “PSYCH OPTIC BLACK LIGHT FUZZ” is the natural culmination of their successful partnership together.
The first opening was held just this past Tuesday and the next is this Saturday, January 15th at The Hurley )( Gallery Space in Costa Mesa. The conceptual installations feature a fluorescent, multi-dimensional sculpture that becomes a free form interactive optical illusion.
The opening this Saturday at Hurley’s )( Space on Saturday 1.15.11 will host a very special live performance by legendary musicians King Buzzo, Duane Denison, Steve Turner and Haze XXL. Buzzo, Denison, Turner and Hazelmyer have formed and played in some of the most renowned and respected music groups in the world, including The Melvins, Tomahawk, The Jesus Lizard, Mudhoney, and founded notorious label Amphetamine Reptile Records. Hazelmyer “HAZE XXL” and Dalek have collaborated on projects in the past so it was a very natural fit for this group of musicians to come on to provide the soundtrack for this interactive exhibition opening.
In the summer of 2009, Dalek was commissioned to create a 10ft x 22ft site specific painting for Hurley’s now infamous 225 Forest concept store, which is home to the Nike 6.0, Converse and Hurley brands. The commissioned painting led to Dalek becoming an ambassador for Hurley, and now his artwork and designs can be seen throughout the Hurley brand.
