For this exhibition, Phantoms In the Front Yard take on the theme of contemporary myth, and delve into the labyrinth of modern spirituality. Through the lenses of classical and aboriginal mythologies from the world over, each Phantoms member will explore, distort and personalize these wide ranging, yet related narratives. From the fantastical to the banal, sagas, fables and fairy tales will be distilled and synthesized with each artist’s respective figurative medium.
Public Dreams, Private Myths will present an array of dynamic paintings, drawings and sculpture, which touch on folk tales, creation myth, and personal family legends, to challenge the viewer and prompt the question: who are the gods and archetypes of our time?
Each member will create a small sculptural component in addition to their 2-dimensional pieces.
Artists include: Michael Abraham, Paul Morstad Painting, Jonathan Sutton, Christian Nicolay, Jeremiah Birnbaum, and Jay Senetchko, with guest member Justin Ogilvie.
This exhibition takes place under the umbrella of Meccanica Presentation Centre’s Revolving Door event series. Expect entertainemnt, food, drink and as always, fantastic paintings as well as sculpture.
