    Release the kraken.

    Up from the murky depths rise the Kraken, mythical beasts from Norse legend who prey on whales, ships and men alike. Subtext Gallery in San Diego is currently celebrating their fifth year in business with a fun concept show utilizing the myth of the Kraken. Challenging their artists to create not just new works, but rather new works layered over found aquatic paintings gives the show a fun appeal with interesting results (Written by Ken).
