From the review for The Vernissage:

Who knew that a few subway stops could transport you not only to another place but also to another time? This past week the E train took us to the end of October. Scott Daniel Ellison transformed the space of ClampArt into a Halloween party, populated with skeletons, ghosts, flying demons and bats. “Iowa, Ohio” is an exhibition of a series of painting that take inspiration from childhood fears and horror stories (through September 6th). Through children-like graphics and dark colors, these works evoke Tim Burton’s imaginary universe. The figures were playful in an obscure way, which blurred the lines between nightmares and dreams. Ellison’s delicate and ironic approach to the world of monsters and fears enrobed the subjects with a lyrical note.
