Sneak Peek: David Bray 'Amateur Occult Club' @ Stephanie Chefas Projects
On March 4th, Stephanie Chefas Projects will unveil AMATEUR OCCULT CLUB, a new solo exhibit from UK artist David Bray. Bray is well known for transcribing a psychoactive iconography through the lens of singular imagery and his unique DIY aesthetic. Utilizing basic drawing tools and found materials, Bray explores the full spectrum of his inner fantasy world and the result is a striking combination of naïve art and wild imagination.
Bray's recent work finds him traversing the darker recesses of his own imagination in an effort to seek understanding and possibly even refuge from a world of confusion. Joining Bray for the ride this time around is his alter-ego, Georg Lubitzer. Together they foray into the Other, which signifies a fearless exploration of the unknown. In Bray's own words, "Nothing makes sense any more. I want it to make sense. Georg Lubitzer and myself decided to seek answers...we set up the AMATEUR OCCULT CLUB to give our search a framework...this body of work is the visual diary of that research and our journey through the Other."
AMATEUR OCCULT CLUB is on view March 4th- April 2nd at Stephanie Chefas Projects, 305 SE 3rd Ave #202, Portland, OR 97214, www.stephaniechefas.com
