David Ruhlman’s mixed media paintings are visual palindromes reflecting the circular nature of beginnings and endings. A History of the Hidden World is an exploration of double entendres, surreal metamorphosis and natural phenomena. These themes relate to apocalypticism and how this mysterious fantasy spawns concepts of beauty and transcendence. Drawing on French playwright Antonin Artaud who used strange and disturbing effects to perplex his audience, Ruhlman’s work depicts peculiar and anthropomorphic motifs that lead viewers through hidden worlds. Exhibition held in the Locals Only Gallery space.
