Ok, you've probably seen this one before, but it's so good.



Featured Artist: Justin Gabbard


What was your inspiration for this piece? Why "Kingdom of the Spiders"?
I had just been out of the city in a rural area and as I looked around it seemed that the whole town was reflecting popular culture from ten years ago, and it had taken that long for the trends to spread to this remote area. My inspiration reflected that idea of a 1970s camp-horror film showing up in remote Latin America some time later.

Have you seen "Kingdom of the Spiders" and, if so, why did it leave a lasting impression?
"Kingdom of the Spiders" is one of my favorite films from the "Man vs Nature" genre of camp and horror films of the 1970s. Shatner's role is great as the veterinarian living in the shadow of his late brother. Shatner's reactions when covered in a mound of seemingly real tarantulas is truly horrifying, and that gives me the willies!

Why do you think Shatner is a cultural icon?
When I was invited to participate in the Shatner Show at the Uppercase Gallery, I was immediately drawn to the icon that is William Shatner. Full of pomp and bravado, Shatner has endured quite a bit of criticism in his career and yet he still keeps acting and directing. I feel like he really enjoys what he does and that is heartening.
