We're so excited for Dan Barry's @dan_barry solo exhibition titled, "The flowers must all fade and the fruits must decay" that opens Friday, October 4 from 8-11p. ⁠⠀ 🌻🌻🌻⁠⠀ At a young age, Dan Barry @danbarry began creating artworks from collected images, photographs and found objects on his family’s rural farm in Wisconsin. He compounded his materials and incorporated painting, drawing and wood carving into his compositions. Ever since Barry has continued to hone his process by diving deep into his psyche to profess empathy as the universal language behind his work. With his unique materials, Barry has the sharpened ability to accommodate empathy as a common thread through repetition of cross-hatching, needlepoint, and phrases to evoke a sense of nostalgia, wonderment, and hope. ⁠⠀ 🌻🌻🌻⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ 🔗in bio gets you updates on this and other exciting exhibitions⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ #laluzdejesus #laluzdejesusgallery #danbarryart #nostalgia #mixedmedia⁠⠀ ⁠⠀

Heavy Water, a solo exhibition by Deirdre Sullivan-Beeman opens Friday October 4 from 8-11p. ⁠ 🌊🌊🌊⁠ ⁠ Detail Image courtesy of @dsullivanbeeman⁠ ⁠ Deirdre Sullivan-Beeman is a self-taught figurative and contemporary surrealist painter who celebrates the hard-earned wisdom of childhood. She depicts subjects that are often young, hauntingly innocent, and teetering on the edge of naïveté. Her painting method combines 14th-century painting techniques, magic realism, and lucid dreams to create pieces that appear to glow from within. These lucid reveries hatch their personas from factors Sullivan-Beeman and her dream environments provoke. She awakens from these dreams, valueless without a critical mass, and dives headfirst into the soup of the collective unconscious. Therein the most ancient realm of the mind, she inherits her stories. “Like water,” Sullivan-Beeman says, “I draw my figures up from the deepest well. The characters in my paintings—and their sidekicks, spiritual daemons—swim among my dreams.” ⁠ ⁠ Sign up for the mailing list to receive updates on our upcoming exhibitions by clicking the 🔗 in bio⁠ ⁠ #laluzdejesus #laluzdejesusgallery #heavywater #dsullivanbeeman #eggtempera

"Reality is for people that lack imagination"⁠ - 😻TOTORO😻⁠ ⁠ Image: courtesy of @riffblast⁠ ⁠ Riffblast starts with chromo-lithographies and then alters them by using water-based acrylics. He interpolates present day icons meant to elicit the familiar and the sarcastic, but the message dives much deeper into the psyche of consumerism and corruption that he experiences in the predominantly Catholic country of Italy. ⁠ ⁠ ⁠He's part of our Lilliputian Hallucinations exhibition opening September 6 from 8-11p⁠ ⁠ ⁠Stay updated on this exhibition by signing up for our mailing list! 🔗in bio⁠ ⁠ #laluzdejesus #laluzdejesusgallery #lilliputianhallucinations #riffblast #totoro #miniatures

⁠ Michelle Avery Konczyk @velvetmush eloquently speaks about her work for Lilliputian Hallucinations opening September 6 from 8-11p:⁠ ⁠ 🌹🌹🌹⁠ "My pieces for the show are based on the concept of beauty growing from the least expected places. The girls in this series are all crying tears of blood, which is turning them into tiny roses. Together, as a whole, they play on the idea of ‘stopping to smell the roses’—as if the roses are metaphorically the little pieces of our lives that get overlooked, ignored, and are not appreciated. They’re reminders that our struggles have not yet, but surely will, blossom into something beautiful. ⁠ ⁠ The raw, ripped edges were a very intentional decision. I could have given them little framed borders for their perfect display, however, the roses worth growing and seeing and smelling don’t come in pretty frames. The ones worthy of our attention are those which have bloomed without intent, in the places we weren’t looking for, or expecting, to find them in. All of these paintings will be mounted to wood that has been cut to fit the torn paper, so hanging them on your wall has a feeling similar to picking one out of the ground with the roots all torn and mangled."⁠ 🌹🌹🌹⁠ ⁠ Click the 🔗in bio to receive updates on this and other upcoming exhibitions⁠ ⁠ #laluzdejesus #laluzdejesusgallery #lilliputianhallucinations #velvetmush #darksurrealism #watercolorportraits ⁠ ⁠ ⁠

🇺🇸MAKE AMERICANA GREAT AGAIN ⁠ Jon Langford's solo exhibition opens ⁠ Sept. 6 from 8-11p.🇺🇸⁠ ⁠ Image: Jon Langford @jonlangfordoffical. "Louis Armstrong." Limited Edition print, hand-finished, varnished and mounted on wood, 10 x 10 inches.⁠ ⁠ In his solo exhibition at the gallery, Langford’s iconic portraits of musicians and their strange mythical talismen bring the lyrics of their melodies into the visual realm. In this current body of visual work, Langford explores the intersection of music and politics in an American landscape of greed and decline. His monochromatic woodcuts combine with poignant text and imagery that resemble punk rock show flyers and timeless cowboy folk art. A comment on the grass roots of American storytelling, Langford aims to “Make Americana Great Again.” ⁠ ⁠ Click the 🔗 in bio to receive more info about this upcoming must-see exhibition⁠ ⁠ #laluzdejesus #laluzdejesusgallery #makeamericanagreatagain #jonlangford #louisarmstrong #americana #zulu⁠ ⁠ ⁠
