Opening Night: Adam Miller, Richard T. Scott and Santiago Caruso at Last Rites Gallery

Dark surrealism nexus Last Rites Gallery recently debuted their two-person show, "Effigies & Idols" by Adam Miller (Hi-Fructose Vol. 26) and Richard T. Scott and Santiago Caruso's concurrent solo show, "Ars Obscura." Reaching into the annals of the past, the three artists approach contemporary themes with styles that allude to different art-historical periods. While Miller's angelic compositions digest the anxiety of an impending apocalypse with imagery inspired by the Romantic period, Scott cultivates a haunting ambiance with a painting style reminiscent of 19th-century portraiture and Caruso looks to Bosch for inspiration for his hellish compositions. Take a look at some opening night photos after the jump, images courtesy of Last Rites Gallery.
