La Luz de Jesus Gallery is pleased to present artists Riffblast & Wick Alexander “Everything Old is New Again”
This December exhibition will feature artwork that is created using thrift store finds. All artworks in the exhibition are priced at $700 and under. This is a great opportunity for collectors new and old to pick up a work of art at a great price. The sale will also be cash and carry so collectors who purchase work in the gallery will be able to take it with them the same day.
Riffblast starts with religious chromo-lithographies with which then he alters by using water-based acrylics. He interpolates present-day icons meant to elicit the familiar and the sarcastic, but the message dives much deeper into the psyche of consumerism and corruption that he experiences in the predominantly Catholic country of Italy.
