DESCRIPTION

This show is an homage to true artists (both alive and dead) whose light - whose fire - burns so brightly as to transpose an indelible mark on society and culture, to shape the world in some way with their distinct vision and the images they create (and leave behind).

Through black and white images and objects, I’m attempting to open the various windows of thought, bridging connections between some of the most diverse, individual, and clear seeing visionaries of our time. Its remarkable to see how works completed over 20 years (Tom of Finland) and even 30 years ago (Robert Mapplethorpe) can appear so extreme and radical in a new light - contextualized within a framework, exploring the boundaries of our world today. The mixture of old and new and the integrated nature of the diverse media here, attempts to shed some light on the true nature of this art – the purity of meaning (the passion and truth) that emerges, clearly, when the deep inner workings are laid bare.
