'This Old House'
Sam Wolfe Connelly
oil on linen 99 cm x 65 cm
As one of the artists on their awesome roster (which I feel honored to be on), I created eight new larger paintings available now at ArcadiaContemporary in NYC.
It’s been really amazing to jump into a brand new media this year and start expressing my ideas on a much larger scale than I ever have before. In this new set of paintings, I’ve been really trying to delve into my past and create works based around things that really spooked me as a kid. Most of the works come out of experiences like listening to summer camp ghost stories, playing hide-and-seek in grandma’s basement, autumn walks in the Connecticut woods, and other fragments of the unknown
My art for Patton Oswalt’s “Tragedy Plus Comedy Equals Time” (@pattonoswalt is the best in all the ways)

Who: CHLOË SEVIGNY What: Joan of Arc How: “I found the dress at a flea market in Paris… The armor I ordered online. The hardest element to find was the Walkman, which was my nod to the Joan of Arc reference in The Smiths song “Bigmouth Strikes Again.” I must have gone to five or more Salvation Armies searching for one. I could only find a Panasonic. Smiths purists called me out and said it wasn’t a “real” Walkman, because it wasn’t a Sony. What nitpickers!” (Photo courtesy of V Magazine, photography by EXU)
