RUN – “Man is Good” at Howard Griffin Gallery (Recap)
Opened in late September, let’s take a look at “Man is God” new exhibition signed by the great RUN inside the space of the Howard Griffin Gallery in Los Angeles.
The show continues the partnership between the gallery and the great Italian artist, through a new body of work characterized by new installations and paintings. Here the reflections of RUN are about a personal idea of God, not necessarily linked to canonical cult or religions, but rather closer to a personal pagan reinterpretation. In this sense, the show explores and investigates the origins of human civilization, a new anthropological study through the iconic subjects that characterize the author’s narrative universe.
The exhibition proposes a reflection on the spirituality of the human being, the giant heads (built by a Mexican company specialized in pots) the large painted curtains as well as the new series of paintings, evoke a dark, mysterious and ancient past. RUN moves here between mythology and folklore contrasting these theme to the 21st century in which the human being, with his mastery of nature and technology, became his own God.
The show will remain open until next October 31.
