Fort Worth Community Arts Center presents Scott Prather: "Deified" opening reception
"Deified" is a series of palindromic paintings, with its bright colors and garish mouths coupled with the strong look of the female image create a unique composition, giving equally to both subjects presented in the work. Taking imagery from traditional tattoo cultures of America and Japan along with a flowing filigree to blend the elements together, the body of work encompasses the blending of culture and aesthetic. By using the size and synergistic composition to further idealize the deification of both subjects, the artist wants to create a moment of reverence and reflection in the presence of the work. The viewer is allowed a choice, to which subject deserves to be deified?
Following the opening reception, the exhibit will be on view through September 26.
