Opening reception: Saturday, Feb. 23 from 6-9 PM
Cirkit of Mythos presents “Texploitation II” featuring new work by Steve Cruz, Omar Hernandez, Eddy Rawlinson and Ryder Richards. This show opens Saturday February 23 with a reception for the artists from 6-9pm and will run till March 30. Hell yeah this is a Texass Art Show with real “ART” and chicks and sex and blood and guts and glory and bar-b-que and more sex. None of this aesthetic hand wringing and whining and hipster doodads, yall can shove that coy, cute and conceptual. Hell we aint anti-intelluctual, look we’re just exposing the dialectic of hypocrisy entrenched in stereotype. We’re Texas artists focused on personal mythology as environmentally determined, taking on the icons of the West and moderm masculinity as politically charged and contentious while hearlding a warning of extremity and romanticized notions of power. Damn straight!
Steve Cruz is also owner operator of Mighty Fine Arts Gallery, Omar Hernandez is a Professor of Art at El Centro College, Eddy Rawlinson moonlights as Dean of Arts and Sciences at El Centro College, and Ryder Richards is currently a Roswell Artist in Residence Fellow.
