Deified by Scott Prather
September 7 – September 26, 2019
FALL GALLERY NIGHT RECEPTION: Saturday, September 7, 2019 @ 6 PM - 9 PM
'Deified' is a series palindromic paintings, with its bright colors and garish mouths coupled with the strong look of the female image create a unique composition, giving equally to both subjects presented in the work. Taking imagery from traditional tattoo cultures of America and Japan along with a flowing filigree to blend the elements together, the body of work encompasses the blending of culture and aesthetic. By using the size and synergistic composition to further idealize the deification of both subjects, the artist wants to create a moment of reverence and reflection in the presence of the work. The viewer is allowed a choice, to which subject deserves to be deified?
