Artist Statement: 

My name is Samuel Bazdresch, and I am a St. Louis based artist.  I thought my artwork would be a good fit, as it is strongly influenced by the horror movie genre, particularly slasher films. I make representational narrative oil Paintings depicting the contradictory natures of attraction and repulsion using dark humor, and imagery from fantasy, mythology, and horror genres. I partner this imagery with Trompe-l'oil and Photorealism techniques to achieve images that are fantasy inspired, but are rendered in such a detailed way that it seems perhaps they could exist. I would like to submit my "Slasher Series", which uses compositions from historic paintings, but changes the characters, replacing them with people from my life, pop culture, and most importantly, characters from slasher horror movies. Not only am I looking at the humorousness of these figures out of time and place, but examining the nature of the boogeyman archetype, it's timelessness as well as its appearance across cultures.
