About Mr. Askew's art (from Hi-Fructose):
In Chris Conn's cryptic bohemian fantasies, the opulent and the lurid combine in a 'fin de siècle' roulade of sleek, striking graphics and poetic, ornemental lushness. Despite the heavy historical influences apparent in his paintings, there also lies a countercultural modernity, as evidenced by the punkish trappings of Clockwork Orange sneers and vampish eyeliner on characters seemingly straight out of a dank Berlin cabaret, not to mention the romantically macabre and absurd juxtapositions of traditional tattoo flash symbology.
Mr. Askew resides in San Francisco.
