I’m something of a Casey Jex Smith fan. I’ve interviewed him and his wife (whose work I love, perhaps, even more) and I was desperate that he let Peculiar Pages use his painting Curious Workmanship on the cover of Fire in the Pasture.
I have to admit I’m really not sold on his Dungeons & Dragons work of late (or much of his turn to the ironically lowbrow), but I can’t deny that he seems to know what he’s doing.
Tonight, October 10, he’s staging a performance art piece in which a Romney D&D character will square off against an Obama Â D&D character and the winner will receive Casey’s real, actual, Ohio vote.
The exhibition is in New York City and will run until the day after Election Day. Lots of Mormony stuff in the show, but the battle is tonight only at the opening.
And that’s what I want to hear your opinion on.
