The infernal Joe Coleman has a show of his mind-blowing paintings opening next week, May 2, at the Dickinson gallery in New York City. Titled "Devotio Moderno," the exhibition also features works by the 15th century Northern Primitives, artists whose work directly inspires Coleman. Seen here, Coleman's "The Book of Revelations," 1999, Acrylic, fabric, paper, blood on panel, 62.2 x 77.5 cm. The show runs until June 15 and the art is viewable online too. From the press release:
(Coleman's) fascination with
themes derived from religion and primitive painting, and his meticulous and detailed
style of unabashed realism, have led to numerous comparisons between his art and the
paintings of the northern renaissance. All his works are united by a very personal
autobiographical theme, and in many ways relate to the early primitive devotional
paintings. This exhibition allows admirers of Joe's work to see the imagery that
influences him, and provides a unique opportunity to see masterpieces of the northern
renaissance side by side with masterpieces by today's greatest "primitive" painter.
Similarly, seeing works by Memling and his contemporaries in this setting, gives us an
opportunity to truly appreciate their shameless realism, and the modernity of expression
they gave to religious work of the 15th century still provides a resonant critique of the
human condition today.
