Chris Sheridan’s ‘Shadows, Persona, and Trickery’ show opens this Saturday, June 18th, 2011, at Art Whino Gallery in National Harbor, Maryland, right outside DC.
A collection of paintings which influenced by the effects of magic and religion and how they played a role in building our early societies, and the disconnect between these theories and beliefs and contemporary modes of thinking. Hidden in the work is the artist’s search for the soul, which he believes is the construct that holds all of these ideas together in our collective unconscious.
Paintings from left to right: The Hipster Madonnas – part 2: Diana (kept a buck in the woods), The Hipster Madonnas – part 1: Mary (had a little lamb), The Hipster Madonnas - part 3: Isis (of the throne, with her goat).
A special live musical performance by Ghost of Handsome Skin begins at 9PM. Shadows, Persona, and Trickery show ends July 11, 2011.
