The New Mythology is an exhibition of paintings representing a cross-section of a moving and powerful talented base of artists working individually toward a stronger sense of personal integrity in their works.
The artists involved in this exhibition have individually chosen a path toward excellence culminating in a moving and powerful figurative result. With their emotional and representative gifts for painting, they have created passports to dimensions of unparalleled and otherwise unrestricted possibility. Each distinctive artist in this exhibition has taken painstaking efforts to carve out a striking niche in their pursuit of a more vibrant visual sense of narrative.
Behind every great sophisticated cultural breeding ground there lies a collection of tales. Within this collective of civilizations’ creative essays, each and every narrative is knit from the threads pulled from a time long before there were thoughts of ways for managing minutes instead of living within them. By accessing the furthest reaches of the present tense, as well as the most notable absent emotional causeways, these artists have begun to fabricate an allegorical evolution the likes of which give rise to a new mythos.
It is without further ado that we present to Rome, Italy and beyond our tales of beginnings without limitation, each centered in their own peculiar relevance. These are the songs sung without hesitance. These are the seeds of The New Mythology.
It is with great love and humility that we present to you our thoughts and dreams with such passion and certainty. And it is our hope to inspire as well as encourage all who share the goal of traveling the spiritual causeways through the core of creativity’s nature.
