SPIRIT IN THE WORKS
Opening: January 19, 6-8pm
Exhibition: January 20-21, 12-6pm

This group show exhibits multimedia art, paintings, and photographic fantasies of men in gender-inquisitive postures by significant emerging artists. Tom Acevedo breaks through the picture plane with acrylic portraiture and involves the viewer with figurative story telling. Steve Glicken displays digital photographs of friends and family in highly stylized settings. Rafael Santiago offers multimedia and collage works from 2009 to the current time examining self-definition and personal values. Naruki Kukita creates oil studies of men with anime characters in classical and fantasy poses: Theseus, Saint Sebastian, and unidentified lovers in a fantasy garden. Terry Furry imagines archetypal male characters from Greek and modern myth in idealized oil painting backdrops. And Bobby Busnach presents “Heavy Metal”, stark black-and-white photos on aluminum playing on beefcake/cheesecake style and the act of photographic creation. All of these are sharp-edged challengers to any rigid notion of self-concept.
