Four Fish of the Apocalypse: A Solo Exhibition by Greg Eason Curated by Sven Davis Breeze Block Gallery Portland OR. 6 February 2014 – 1 March 2014
Breeze Block Gallery is proud to present Four Fish of the Apocalypse, an all-new solo exhibition by Greg Eason in the Breeze Block Gallery 2 space.
In his latest body of work Four Fish of the Apocalypse, Eason uses religious and apocalyptic imagery to deconstruct The Book of Revelation - Chapter 6 of the King James Bible. The four monsters responsible for the apocalypse are described in the text as salmon, cod, mackerel and haddock.
Greg Eason’s practice deals with a formal and conceptual dissection of space. His meticulously detailed and characteristically sparse drawings and paintings isolate and monumentalise narrative fragments and translate this into a microscopic frame. Objects become rendered as intricate miniature components within a vast negative space, creating an uneasy sense of depth and scale. Objects are also presented as symbols, eggs and skulls are recurring motifs. The ideas explored within his practice comment upon mortality, spirituality, life, nature and the history of mankind.
