iLLUSiONAL at Chashama, New York City
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.
The installation consists of two mannequin busts (covered in paint and line drawings) spinning on hidden turntables, painted and drawn acoustic guitar and vinyl records, 3 tracks of video projections, original music, and a painted chair in which viewers can sit.
