Im’ago Primordialis Group Show @ Krab Jab Studio


Krab Jab Studio invites you to join them for their latest group show, ‘Im’ago Primordialis: Fantastic Realism and Visionary Art‘ that opens this Saturday 9 July 2016. In the modern day, we have entered a world where mysticism hides in the shadows; science, logic and the need to understand reign tall within every crack of modern civilization. It is as if we have forgotten the very sense of fulfillment that can be gained from embracing the unknown. With this in mind, Krab Jab Studio aims to turn the tide on such clinical thinking. Many of the artists contributing to ‘Im’ago Primordialis’ have embraced mystery as a true source of inspiration; Krab Jab Studio invites you to revel in the secrecies of the unknown, enjoying the best of surrealism, mythology and fantastical works that span across an array of cultures and time periods.

Curated by Don Farrell

“Mystery has been banished; everything must be defined. And yet, while analytical thought bestows many gifts upon civilization, we remain insatiable. As if the unknown, itself, is the very ferment of community, humility, love….and life. Like the mystical traditions of countless cultures, [each artist’s] works assign symbols to The Unknowable, reaching through the ephemeral illusion we have come to know as reality, to an underlying, timeless, spiritual narrative. Universal mythology is interpreted with vivid imagination, and masterful technique renders it believably real.” – Julie Baroh, owner of Krab Jab Studio.
