“ANCIENT BLOODY KNUCKLES" Synchronicity Space is pleased to announce the opening of "Ancient Bloody Knuckles" on Friday, December 19th. This show will include artists Matt Lock, Jason Scott, and Eric Shaw.

An opening reception will take place Friday, December 19th from 7pm to midnight featuring a special musical performance from VIBES (not not fun) at 9:30pm.

Matt Lock is a 24 year old artist based out of Southern Massachusetts. Though he's been drawing regularly throughout his life it's only in the past 4 years that he's grown more serious and broken into the art world. Matt's work has been published by Nieves Books, Shoboshobo Books and Cederteg Publishing of Sweden. His art has been featured in many large group shows over the past few years, most recently at Giant Robot New York and Domy Books. Matt is inspired by a myriad of things: science fiction, early heavy metal culture, urban decay, solitude, laziness and high school level humor to name a few.

Jason Scott remains, as an artist, somewhat of an enigma partly due to the fact that he and his work never stagnate in the same place for too long. Born in Jacksonville, Florida, and raised all over the world, most notably Australia, Berlin, Seattle and Texas, Scott now finds himself en route to Los Corales, New Mexico. His influences include artist Rick Griffin, Hopi Indians and music.

Eric Shaw lives and works out of Brooklyn, New York. First discovered by us due to album artwork that he made for a seven inch from not not fun records, his work has been shown at KRETS in Sweden and more recently a solo in Brooklyn at the Market Hotel presented by Shaw makes a staggering amount of work and all of it is detailed, dark, whimsical, large-scale and wonderful.

We are thrilled to bring these three young and prolific artists' work together for "Ancient Bloody Knuckles."

Artist, Jason Scott, will be in attendance so come and dance with him. The exhibition will be on display from December 19th to January 24th at Synchronicity Space, 4306 Melrose Ave., Los Angeles, CA 90029
