The Right of The Black Sun - An Exhibition by Andy Wauman
‘The Rite of the Black Sun’
“Sometimes the questions are complicated and the answers are simple.”
? Dr. Seuss
Join us in the Deus Gallery on Friday the 13th at 7pm for the opening night of ‘The Rite of the Black Sun’ the latest exhibition by artist Andy Wauman. Some time ago Andy replaced pavements with palm trees in his journey to find an implication to it all. Since living in Bali, Andy’s art has been more and more about exploring the existentialism of this cut of Hindu culture while at the same time dilly-dallying with their symbolism. So join us on the 13th, grab some free Plaga wine and Albens cider and have a walk around the gallery.
In this, his latest teaching, the name of which Andy adopted from Antonin Artaud’s poem, he’s staked out a snapshot of his fidgety soul. It’s a multisensory exploration of what currently resides. A mesmerising mental flush of his verve, preaching nothing but not keeping quiet about it either.
Would and were to be. Not instantly evident they are truly narrative of the artist over layered with meaning and meant. Flags once were triumphs, flown overhead when kings as they rode into battle. Triumphs also known as Trionfi, a name Tarot wore in another age. Glimpses of understanding. A four-dimensional exploration of his id. Autobiographical in title and substance, all of which is hidden here in this gallery… in plain sight.
