This is new art, but it stretches deep into time. New skin for an old ceremony.

In conversation, it’s possible I might say this art is grotesque. Other introductions might  include:

 

repugnant, incongruous, bizarre

irrational, unnatural, brutal

intoxicated and confrontational

as well as erotic, fantastic, and fetishistic

 

It is not art for art’s sake. It is art that is very much involved.  It marks a constant struggle to belong together.  It is often an art of social protest.

One might think that this kind of work is no more than whim and fantasy. Others may find this work an answer to the riddle of art itself.

We will have a couple chances to talk about this, perhaps at the opening on July 18 or during the evening program on July 22.

Perhaps the best introduction to the artists and their work is the following …
