Dirby, under the auspices of Gentleman’s Necromancy, works primarily with neglected and rescued materials. His work thematically explores the rebirth of the dead and discarded by giving new meaning and life to oft-forgotten objects and spaces.

Like the ghosts that live inside his pieces, Dirby thrives behind the scenes; his creativity flourishes in hidden corners of New York City and beyond. Dirby has orchestrated and designed clandestine platforms for group expression, interaction, and revelry in places such as a water tower, a shipwreck, a coal refinery, and a buried subway station.

Other long-term projects include captaining and maintenance of the Acavallo carousel, and set fabrication for ACME Studio.

Jaclyn is the Gumbo Goddess of Thunder Gumo. Bakes with abandon and dreams. Has a rack of skulls and bones bleaching in her back yard, and closet full of clothes that is just animal print. She is a wood carver of pieces that have raw passion and energy that when she makes wood block prints front them, you are surprise that they are in ink rather than blood.”—as written by Mark
