Tomorrow night in New York, Last Rites will be continuing their devotion to the dark arts with new work from David Stoupakis (above) and Matthew Bone. Stoupakis will be putting a new collection of paintings on display collectively entitled Ashes To Sorrow featuring his haunting imagery and grim fairytale-like details. The show, his first solo at the gallery, is a continuation of his previous body of work – Walking with These Shadows. He states “It is a further journey for me to better understand loss, the unknown, what lies beyond and to get peace.” Bone, on the other hand, has created new work exploring visual language influenced by his massive unmonitored media consumption of things like pornography, comic books and movies in childhood. Enjoy more preview images below.
