"Much of what governs people are superstitions based on myth and legend. We are often dominated by fears perpetuated by our traditions, cultural and religions" – Bob Moskowitz
Known for his neoclassical and contemporary portraiture, Bob explores new territory with this work by dipping into the magical realms of myth and legend. Breaking from traditions of romanticism of mythology in the visual arts, Bob's work provides a sudo-mythological parody. Everyday antiheroic characters appear almost reluctant into their mythological positioning.
“Myth and Legend”, curated by Om Bleicher, will be on view at the Bleicher/Golightly Gallery at 1431 Ocean Ave in Santa Monica. This exhibition will run from Sept 1st, through Sept 20th, 2010. The artist reception will be held on Saturday September 11th from 6 to 10pm.
Bleicher/Golightly specializes in investible works by artists that have crossed traditionally contentious art ideologies, including expressive-conceptual, insider-outsider, high-low and figurative-abstract. A schedule of events and exhibits is available from BGArtDealings.com
