Thanatophobia, or the fear of death, is an ancient and primal phobia that Saddo confronts in his upcoming solo, "A Stranger in the Garden". Opening this Friday the 13th at BC Gallery, his exhibition showcases his largest, and most challenging works to date on canvas and paper. Human society has shared his fascination with death for centuries in a variety of ways whether through reverence to religious deities or cultural practice. With added personal motifs, Saddo portrays such subjects as Anubis, the Egyptian god of death, and Kālī, the Hindu goddess of death.
