David Cook explores love, hate, sex, and death in new seriesJuxtapoz // Tuesday, 27 Jul 2010
David Cook plans to unveil a grand narrative in his upcoming solo show at Gallery Three in the upstairs portion of White Walls Gallery.
For this exhibition, Cook has built an elaborately themed body of work around a tale of love, hate, sex, and death between a high priestess, a two-headed king, and their respective armies of fantastical creatures within 30-35 mixed media pieces.
The artist's imagery employs a mythological language inspired by such subversive influences as heavy metal music and a personal friendship with a dominatrix whose domme persona, "Teresa Nasty", is rendered two-dimensionally as the main character in the Epic Battles narrative.
Running from August 14th - September 7th at White Walls Gallery
Opening August 14th from 7:00pm - 11:00pm
