iLLUSiONAL at Chashama, New York City

February - April 2021

Five person exhibition with Kat Ryals, Valeria Divinorum, Dario Mohr, and Jonathan Sims.


From the press release:

The artist takes ideas from the invisible realms and manifests them into physical or digital reality. The artist transforms raw materials into new forms and literally creates worlds out of thin air. These magical acts are conjured out of a necessity to create artifacts that express the concerns and obsessions of the greater consciousness through the individual. The artists in this show perform alchemy on their chosen mediums to question power, decode memory, investigate personal mythology, and gather psychic and spiritual energy.
