Paul Booth’s Last Rites Gallery Presents: Yoko d’Holbachie

INTHEDARK_WebLast Rites Gallery: What is your earliest memory of picking up a paintbrush? Tell us a little more about it.

Yoko d’Holbachie: I attended a painting class run by an American couple when I was 3 years old. I drew monsters, ghosts and snails with a shell full of eye balls often.

Last Rites Gallery: What does In the Dark mean and why did you choose it for your exhibition at Last Rites Gallery?

Yoko d’Holbachie: I loved the gallery’s space coronation for the dark art, when I visited the Last Rites Gallery. It inspired me for new painting idea that the beautifully glowing critters in the gloom. What I wanted to paint for this exhibition is actually the gleam in the dark, not the dark.

Last Rites Gallery: Please tell us a little bit more on why you paid tribute to contemporary and classical mythologies in some of your pieces? (Ayida Weddo, Hatmehit, Gorgon?)

Yoko d’Holbachie: My critters in my painting had been living inside of me. They have no name. I borrow the stories from various kind of mythologies, when I give a birth to my critters and the story suits to them. Those goddesses I like are not just having super power but also evil, angelic, humanistic, and a mother…

Dan Henk: What’s Wrong With the Whole ‘Tattoo Artist’ vs. ‘Tattooer’ Crap

By Dan Henk
People love clichés. They love to pick apart their coworkers and neighbors. One of the many, many little schools of dissension in tattooing tends to be the “tattoo artist” versus the “tattooer” label.

Some circles, especially those who focus on old-school, have decided that “tattoo artist” is a pejorative. There is a whole list of complaints I’ve heard regarding anything that doesn’t look like a traditional tattoo. Everything from ”that won’t hold up over time,” to “that doesn’t look like a tattoo” to “anyone who wants to be called a tattoo artist is a pretentious hipster, this is a noble working class profession like pipe fitting or blacksmithing…”  (more…)


Dan Henk: Sometimes The Old-Timers Are Right

By Dan Henk
When I first started tattooing, the industry seemed to be breaking new ground. People like Guy Aitchison, Tom Renshaw and Aaron Caine were redefining what could be done with the form. It was an exciting time. I had been to art school, was doing album covers for bands, illustrations for a few clubs and magazines, and I finally saw that tattooing could be as detailed and complex as any other medium. I had interviewed with DC Comics, and Penguin books and both were very restrictive… (more…)

Chet Zar: Second Skin Group Show July 14th at Copro Gallery

By Chet Zar
I only discovered the tattoo community about 3 years ago when I was invited by tattoo artist Jon Lane to paint live at 2009′s Visionary Tattoo Art Festival. I was impressed from the start. Not only were these artists creating truly cutting edge art work on skin (conceptually, tattooing blows every other artistic statement out of the water, in my opinion), they were also painting as good as or better than a lot of well known contemporary painters I’ve seen. I was truly blown away at the variety of styles, techniques and ideas and wondered why I wasn’t seeing a lot of this stuff at the galleries I was showing at and going to, especially when a lot of the artists were expressing interest in showing at these galleries… (more…)


NIck Baxter: The Autopsy Art Opening at Last Rites Gallery

On May 26th, 2012 Last Rites Gallery presents The Apostasy, new works by Nick Baxter, in what will be his second solo show at the gallery.

Nick Baxter’s technically demanding painting style dwells somewhere in between traditional sharp-focus still life and modern photorealist styles, while bringing in elements of symbolism and surrealism. His subject matter tends to center around close-ups of skin and visceral, bloody macro-scapes, in exploration of what it means to be human- to have a unique consciousness inhabiting a vessel of flesh and blood… (more…)


Dan Henk: The Horror Convention

By Dan Henk
Horror has been around a long, long time. The early fairy tales were much darker than their current Disney-fied versions. The primal gods of ancient civilizations endured lives filled with maniacal beasts, surreal landscapes and an ever-changing world of magic and dark sorcery. The oral traditions of early man’s forefathers always had an element of horror…  (more…)

J: How We Started on the Other End of the Earth

By J
My name is J, and I am currently the owner of the Dark J Tattoo Studio here in Taipei, Taiwan. The studio/shop is located on the basement floor, next to the studio is a band practice space, and that’s co-owned by the Taiwanese metal band, Chthonic. The studio/shop has frequent customers and a lot of bands walk by, like the artwork, and then got tattoos. I’ve worked with multiple bands and artist, I would say that the studio has been doing really well. Fans, bands, friends and walk-ins are the major source of customers at the place. It’s located at such a perfect environment that it became an attraction around the area. TV shows often come by and pick up the scene as the background for various TV programs…
