ACRE + HEAVEN GALLERY are proud to present A LONG TIME COMING: works by COLE ROBERTSON, ELINA MALKIN, ELISA "POOPER" HARKINS, MARVIN ASTORGA and VIRGINIA ABERLE the next installment in ACRE's year-long series of exhibitions by 2011 ACRE summer residents.
A LONG TIME COMING
“Alchemy. Creation. Beginning. Mastery of the four elements of fire, earth, air and water. The Magician is the Master Creator with her ability to forge a new path with seeming effortlessness. The magic of the Magician in that she uses all the tools in her possession to create what she wants and the elements bend to her will. With the universal symbol of infinity over her head the Magician’s power is endless.”
As the world theoretically draws to its oft-projected conclusion, the need for new realities presses on our collective unconsciousness. Whether these predictions are true or not, the possibility that the world will end presents the opportunity to fall in love with your world again, turn language inside out, and revel in the absurdity of experience.
A LONG TIME COMING presents an alchemical vision of hidden histories, trash culture, and synchromysticism. This group show aims to dispense with the austere and the hyper-analytical. We are asking the hidden realms of the mind to come out and play. Create your own reality, open yourself to possibility, and embrace the unimaginable.
