Some Dark Miracle: Aaron Gilbert and Jason Mones

Curated by Yael Rosenblut Gallery


“Today belongs to the mob: who could still know what is great and what small?” Nietzsche, Thus Spoke Zarathustra: Fourth Part.

Yael Rosenblut Gallery at Artisanal House is pleased to present Some Dark Miracle, a two-person exhibition of work by artists Aaron Gilbert and Jason Mones.

What new colors in the prism of our imagination can bring light to the somber questions of today’s conscience? This transitional period of history brings new dimensions of form to the tropes of our collective experience and requires us to examine our intimate relationships.

In this exhibition Gilbert and Mones present a group of selected paintings that together examine the various constructions of male subjectivity in all of its appetencies. Form and color are amplified within each of their figures, intertwining violence and sexual desire to suggest a metamorphosis of unnatural being. Each artist uses a multitude of art historical approaches to convey these scenarios.
