chashama 461 Gallery is pleased to present_A Decade in the Hadal Zone_, an exhibition of ten paintings by NYC artist John DiLorenzo. DiLorenzo’s work focuses on the primordial and supernatural qualities of his early memories, culminating into what the artist refers to as an “adventure in the dark”. His canvases explore imagery from varied sources such as locations where he grew up, things witnessed on television, nightmares and revelatory visions he had as a child.
A Decade in the Hadal Zone consists of imagery specific to the artist’s own experience, while being open to interpretation, focusing on painting as a means to draw the viewer toward his or her own inner life as well.
This exhibition is supported in part by an award from the National Endowment for the Arts.
