Preview: Crajes’s “Ingemisco, tanquam reus, culpa rubet vultus meus; supplicanti parce, Deus.”

Fascinated by the lasciviousness bred in cultural environments that repress sexuality, Barcelona-based duo Crajes created a new body of work for their upcoming solo show, “Ingemisco, tanquam reus, culpa rubet vultus meus; supplicanti parce, Deus.” The lengthy Latin title translates to "I groan, as one guilty, my face reddens in guilt: Spare the supplicating one, God" — a prayer that becomes ironic when one views the fetishistic, gag-like ornaments and supple nude bodies in the oils and pen-and-ink works in the show. Longtime comic book fans, Crajes paint visual elements culled from the European Baroque with a painting style that evokes Japanese Pop Art. Take a look at a sneak peek of their solo show before it opens at Galeria N2 in Barcelona on November 7.
