The Grotesque

SEE EVENT DETAILS
at Modern Eden (see times)
Modern Eden Gallery is pleased to announce The Grotesque, a group exhibition in the style of grotesques in which natural forms and monstrous figures are intertwined in bizarre or fanciful combinations. The grotesque has a long legacy in the chronicles of art history. The philosophical ideas of Plato and Plotinus on horror versus beauty in the classical era inspired a resurgence in grotesque drawing and painting during the Renaissance.

Directly influenced by Dante’s Inferno and his particular vision of hell, many artists began considering the verso of surface level beauty. By measuring the depths of ugliness and horror through painting, artists of all ages like Leonardo da Vinci, Gustave Dore, Francisco Goya, Hieronymus Bosch, Edvard Munch, Otto Dix and more have discovered that the strength of the grotesque art form lies in it’s ability to measure beauty.

Featuring: Ransom & Mitchell, MANDEM, Laura Buss, JOEMUR, Catherine Moore, Jeremy Wilson, Lacey Bryant, Brenton Bostwick, Yvette Endrijautzki, Derrick Scocchera, Jon Weiss, Wesley T. Wright, Jessica Ward, Jenifer J. Renzel, Jaclyn Alderete, David Richardson, Michael Cuffe, Lara Dann, EC Steiner, Terry Ribera, Benjamin A. Vierling, Ronnie Ray Mendez, J.A.W. Cooper , Caitlin McCormack, Tim Lane, Lindsey Millikan, Corey Urlacher, 100Taur, Christopher Burch, Marie-Eve Proteau, Ryan Gannon, Erica Calardo, Akira Beard, Jessica L.L Dalva, Avery Palmer, Leilani Bustamante and Matthew Robertson

The opening reception will be held at Modern Eden Gallery on Saturday, March 8th from 6-10pm. Select featured artists will be in attendance at the reception. The exhibition will be on display through March 22, 2014 and is free and open to the public.
