Opening this Saturday, April 30th at the Last Rites Gallery in New York is two solo shows, Lilith by Sarah Joncas, and The Decay by Anthony Pontius. Sarah Joncas is using the Lilith myth more as what the character represents, not a direct reference. As stated in the press release “the women I’m portraying in these pieces are bolder, more sexual and more mature than those of my previous work, I’ve decidedly brought back some of the whimsy that I’d abandoned after years of schooling.” Anthony Pontius is using a mixed approach to painting to create new myths, “a story that is familiar yet it has not been cultivated by anyone.”
Creep Machine was able to get some exclusive preview images, so hit the “read more” link to check out the full preview. The gallery is also taking pre-orders, so if you are interested in any of the works make sure to contact them directly. Otherwise, keep your eyes on the Last Rites homepage and if you can attend the show it will be up until June 5th.
