Love Spells is an exhibition of original works from the Pop-Lore, series along with a selection of renditions from influential artists in the cannon of art history.  


*As an artist, it’s difficult to look at the cannon of art history and find a point where our work fits in.  Studying the methods and techniques of the past affords an outlet to find an original voice.  The “unique” is not born from pure genius but is rather borrowed.  Just like our memories; they are glorified by our understanding of the present.  Even a false memory has a geniality of truth.  Only by studying from them is it possible to move forward through the past to help shape our own perception of “beauty.”

It’s not our job as artists to discover something that has never been said before. The goal is to connect with humanity and show them a different way of looking at an already familiar concept. There is a language to finding it, a mythology that acts as a moral compass. Though there are many directions to go, you recognize “beauty” wherever it leads you.
