Spectres: The Art of Jordu Schell
Thursday, Oct. 30th — Dec. 3rd
Opening Party Thursday, Oct 30th at 7:00 pm
This special Halloween-themed opening party will feature the monstrous latex mask sculptures of artist Jordu Schell. Costumes are welcome and encouraged!
"Monsters for me are an expression of mankind's most terrible aspects. War, betrayal, corruption and deceit are bigger and more frightening than their manifestation in a single person. I seek to bring to life in a symbolic way these horrors — to put a face to them, sum them up in one creature. But another, very important aspect of these creations is the intimate knowledge of death and disease that every man and woman must confront, eventually. These creations represent my attempt at catharsis for these fears and understandings — something I can control when I am, in fact, powerless."
