Summary, etc. note: This collection of selected pen and graphite drawings range from the whimsical to the hyper-realistic, with some looking as though they were lifted from a turn-of-the-century catalogue. Many include captions, which convey humourous narrative arcs and add a sometimes bizarre dimension to the work. The Blaring House is inspired by children’s book illustrations, absurdist humour, and late Victorian portrait photography. “Adept, antiquated draughtsmanship, atypical humour, Seringhaus is a Van Leeuwenhoek’s flask of broth comprised of the DNA from the dandruff of Glen Baxter, the fingernail parings of Edward Gorey and the juice wrung from the socks of Monty Python. This is absurd, solid, funny stuff.” ― Joe Ollmann, author of Mid-Life
