Night Train and Amberella Gallery presents “Nothing But Trouble”

Myles Smutney’s 2010 Calendar Relase Party!

Myles Smutney is a Philadelphia-based artist exploring the darker side of beauty through her silkscreen prints, pen-and-ink illustrations and mixed-media installations. Born and raised in Chicago, Myles received her training through brief interludes at art school in both Chicago and New York City.

Borrowing from the iconography of classic tattoo flash and punk rock subculture, Smutney endorses a homegrown, D.I.Y. attitude.

She examines themes of mortality through reoccurring imagery, such as picturesque roses, expressive skeletons, and striking women. These momento moris embody the fragile and fleeting nature of life.  But all is not bleak in Smutney’s universe; symbols of fortune, strength, and eternal love are woven into her compositions.  She dabbles in fashion, collaborating with designers, participating in live screen printing events, and fabricating her designs on new and repurposed clothing.

This time Myles has turned her focus onto a 2010 Calender.  Each month is depicted with a corresponding modern take on the classic American pin-up girl.  She has maintained their authenticity by using traditional 1940’s poses, celebrating Woman’s sexuality as something to be admired with an added rock and roll twist.  Each illustration is drawn by hand.
