Myths are a human necessity, a deep need of our individual and cultural psyches to digest what we see, hear and experience in the world around us. Fantasy narratives and legendary tales reach extreme popularity, demonstrating how much we not only need but love our mythologies and our magic imaginations. They are not just entertainment but guidance and a way to frame language around the complexity of living. The artists in this exhibition are working within a visual mythology that blurs categorical definition, weaving between species, states of consciousness, blending into otherness in a story that roves between a monstrous and a sacred narrative. The opening is January 11th, 2019 6-9pm @5-50 Gallery located at 5-50 51st Ave., Long Island City, NY.
