2013 is off to a strong start for Venice art gallery CURIO, with the opening of their first exhibition of the new year titled Sea Of Blasphemy, a special group show guest curated by Jacob Arden McClure. Coasts collide as California artists Bill McRight and Ben Venom converge with Philadelphian Bonnie Brenda Scott and Brooklynite Jon Bocksel to present a provocative display of sculpture, painting and mixed media art works.
Disillusioned with modern day society's acceptance of violence, profanity, and taboo, we find ourselves floating in a proverbial "Sea of Blasphemy", where little, these days, is considered sacred or shocking. Banality gives way to a sick sort of freedom, to explore and experiment, through art, the true meaning of right and wrong, scared and evil, subconscious and reality. Four of today's most talented contemporary artists are put to the test of complacency-among-chaos, revealing surprisingly vibrant, thoughtful, and even jovial narratives in the form of art, for this engaging exhibit.
