Cradled within the atmospheric darkness of the newly renovated Last Rites Gallery in NYC was an intense convergence of new works by artists Chet Zar and Craig LaRotonda. While Zar’s creatures took on confrontational poses in the tightly focused portraits, LaRotonda explored the 7 deadly sins via darkly portrayed primates. While both artists’ oeuvres focused on macabre imagery, Zar’s works exhibited an incredible control of light and color while LaRotonda employed a unique style that made the paintings appear like relics exhumed from old churches.
