With fans and patrons like David Cronenberg and Guillermo del Toro, Dave Cooper creates a singular universe that's immediately recognizable. A spicy blend of everything that bubbles up in his head, his imagery leaves no one indifferent. Drawing on childhood innocence, adolescent humiliation, doodling desires, and carnal obsessions, his style is completely unique and always filled with surprises. It's difficult to know if it's his dreams or his nightmares that inspire most. "It's probably an attempt to mirror the ambiguity of reality: pretty things are not always synonymous with good. The villains do not necessarily mean danger" he says. In this exhibition Anim'est will focus on work that served as inspiration or was actual production art for Dave's award-winning short film, "The Absence of Eddy Table".
