“We're in the darkest region of the human brain, a radiant
abyss where men go to find themselves. Hell…we are in hell.”
Jack the Ripper- “From Hell”
Devolution, regression and return of human kind to a primordial state of chaos and potential are made a reality. A tumultuous, orgiastic bursting of horrific and sublime energy occurs as a by-product of this degeneration, demarcating a modicum of hope. A warped vision of regeneration, a weird sort of catharsis and cleansing that the three artists in ‘Sliding Down A Radiant Abyss’ elucidate with the use of painting, sculpture and film.
The transgressive use of material and form within the work is a key theme shared throughout the show. The artists test the limitations and capacity of their chosen medium to portray a darkly seductive, malign and at times pathological view of the human condition. The need for a constructive attrition of communal cultural identity is made urgent within the alternate realities of this latest group show.
