Opening Sat. Oct. 6th :: 7-10pm :: KP Projects is proud to present “Cosmic Connections” a new exhibition of paintings by artist Deedee Cheriel. The artist’s spiritual compositions reference East Indian ritual art: attempting to invoke deities, exorcise negative forces, celebrate rites of passage, and mark turning points in growth, rebirth and renewal. Drawing upon nature and her trademark hybrid animal-people as subjects, Cheriel creates delightfully enlightened and meditative narratives. ✨:: RSVP to [email protected] to join us opening night. ✨:: #deedeecheriel #cosmicconnections #spiritialart #folkart #nature #newcontemporary
“This new body of work, ‘Cosmic Connections,’ explores themes of: illusions of separations, ego, humility, forgiveness, truth, passages, connectedness, enlightenment, and new beginnings,” the gallery says. “Although whimsical at times, Cheriel examines profound dichotomies between adversity and catharsis and similarly, love and acceptance. These complexities are inherent to humans’ ability to connect and also accept each other and ourselves. Her iconic imagery is reminiscent of tarot cards, 1920s political art, Alchemist manuals and dreamscapes that evolve into a reflection of self and collective experience.”
The show runs Oct. 6-27 at the gallery. See more works from the show below.
