SNEAK PEEK: João Ruas 'YORE' (November 2011)
João Ruas

Reception with the artist:
Sat, Nov. 5th 5-8PM

On view Nov. 5th - Nov. 26th

'YORE' will feature over 20 new paintings, 5 new etchings, 3 stunning works on ostrich eggs and more to be shared soon. Joao will arrive a good week before the opening to work on a mural for the exhibit and we'll be helping to publish a limited edition catalog for the show. Please know we'll also have some copies on hand of his limited edition book 'Minion' that was released in limited quantities at this past July's San Diego ComiCon.

João's statement on 'YORE':
Selfishness, complexes, everyday issues and anxiety are not exclusive of our times. It seems obvious but our unconscious arrogant adolescent attitude towards the people that walked on the same grounds we live on, tries to prove the contrary.

'Yore' is an ode to echoes, to beliefs and lost truths waiting to be discovered.
