Press Release // From the Artist

“The Forbidden Experiment of the Night Womb is a series and group show which explores the cave – a dark, primal space, home to strange creatures foreign to sunlight, and source of the earliest known art. Some have theorized that prehistorically these locations served purposes related to spiritual/religious practices, possibly involving altered states of consciousness, and perhaps our original artworks are relics of this. Join us as we we delve into the earth once more, in hope of perceiving and explaining what it means to be human”
