Above and below, you can see the work of Chris Peters.
David MacDowell from the Genesis group show:
Ewelina's work will be in the Deception portion. She says of her work, “For many months now the portals of my canvas have been channeling the incantations of an ancient fairy tale which lives ever present in the hearts of modern man. Step inside the canvas and be welcomed to the world of Immaculate Deception…??The rulers of our realm press upon its inhabitants a decree for factory line productivity. We the people are driven by an insatiable need to create the shiny and new. Thus we are becoming a fast news nation, a fast food nation, a fast sex nation and in the process are starving ourselves of that mystical quality that makes us human; not dispensable animated bodies - part plastic, part clay.? As we the human race travel on this journey of truth and deception there is only one champion who will duel for our freedom. She beats inside us all; she is the path of heart.”
Genevive Zacconi's work will be in the Deception portion. She says of her work, "Working within the context of the exhibition title, Immaculate Deception, I've taken both themes of betrayal, and aspects within theology and integrated them into my own art. Believing that religion is a product of human imagination, I feel as though this complex explanation for existence is representative of the psyche of the greater whole of humanity, aside from religious sect; the motifs within the imagery & parable being inherent aspects of all of human life. I've therefore tried to take the topics that have stood out to me, through my Catholic upbringing, and apply them to broader issues in modern times. Human suffering, martyrdom, self-imposed victimization, and sacrifice being some of the subjects that have particularly caught my attention and which I see as having risen to the surface of my work within this show."
