"United Citizen Ship" (2016). Oil on canvas, 48" x 48" inches
LOS ANGELES, CA---Patrick McGrath Muniz tracks issues like climate change through the iconography and mythology of several cultures over time. In the show “Credo” at La Luz De Jesus Gallery, the artist’s recent work in this vein is collected. “By appropriating figures and icons present in Art History, Pop Culture, Christian Iconography and Mythology, I depict scenes that mirror my own experience living in a world of stronger storms, fires, and floods as well as alternative facts and climate change denial.” The show runs through May 27 at the gallery.
