As I mentioned yesterday, there are some wonderful events this week leading up to the NYC Tattoo Convention, which takes place this Friday through Sunday at the Roseland Ballroom.
Another art show we'll be attending tomorrow -- a show I've been excited about since I learned about its progression last Fall -- is "Apokalupsis" A Contemporary View From the Revelation of John The Divine by the wonderful Adrian Dominic. The show opens tomorrow at Sacred Gallery (from 8-11pm) and runs until June 30th. Based on the preview, it's really a must see. And the story behind the series is compelling as well. Here's a bit from it:
In this series, Adrian
ambitiously attempts to illustrate characters from the most abstract and
visually confrontational book of the Holy Bible. Inspired by a genuine
search for knowledge of self and freedom from spiritual dogma, this
series approaches characters with respect to the descriptions of the
ancient texts and attempts a certain level of accuracy while
instinctively and naturally infusing the sense of spiritual urgency and
emergency currently prevalent in many of the world's aware and seekers
of personal truth. With these very old and powerful symbols,
reintroducing them to the audience to bring about a dialogue of ancient
human spiritual conditions and how they are more than relevant in our
modern fast moving times, outside of the dogmatic constraints of
judgement. His goal is to truly inspire and challenge the audience to
see where we each stand in this epic tale and to see their own
reflection in the characters intentions.
Beyond painting, Adrian has been creating exciting tattoos, described as dynamic sculpturesque designs, since 1999.You can see more of his tattoos and fine art at www.adriandominic.com.
So, I hope to see y'all at "Apokalupsis" tomorrow. Considering that David Sena's "Blunted Paranoia" show is in walking distance to Sacred Gallery, I'll be hitting up both exhibits. Should be a fun night!
