This Saturday night (May 26th), the Last Rites Gallery will be hosting The Soul Never Sleeps from Chris Peters in what will be his second solo show at the gallery (see 2010). About the 12 works he created for the exhibition, the LA-based artist states – “In this show I continue the search for beauty in dark places. I love that uneasy twilight place between life and death, between reality and unreality, between hope and despair. I use the vocabulary of Vanitas and Catholic religious symbolism to tell the tale; all refer to the cycle of life, death and the promise of resurrection.” Of interest, Peters also made short film to accompany the exhibition as his 13th “painting.”
