Todd James (a.k.a REAS) is having the opening reception for his show at Gering and Lopez Gallery in New York tonight. The exhibition entitled “Make My Burden Lighter.” draws inspiration from some of the current world crises, and attempts to depict them through a visual medium.
“This show “Make my Burden Lighter” is about some of the themes in my recent work global conflicts and economic disasters that have been tied into it and trying to find the finish line to them and maybe finding some humor on the way through it all. As Skeme’s mom said in Style Wars, “You have to laugh to keep from crying.” These are really everyone’s burdens, I’m just discussing them visually in my voice.”
The exhibition will be on display through February 20th. Make sure you check it out if you are in the area.
