The Church of Love & Confusion: Hypnopomp in the Cave of the Spaceman
November 3 - December 1, 2012
Filmmaker Rod Webber, (who directed Greta Gerwig in his 2010 film Northern Comfort), is gearing up for his latest offering, The Church of Love and Confusion.
The ambitious project is both a film and a series of paintings about a clan of shipwrecked cosmonauts in which Webber focuses on microcosms, moments and minutiae. The story (of the filmed portion), does not concern itself with traditional story-telling techniques, but rather focuses on shadow-play and patterns which become the pounding pulse of winged aliens and Dante-esque hell-scapes. Webber’s paintings are what would be best described as cro-magnon space-art, or perhaps futuristic cave drawings. Webber is a true risk-taker, and the show is well worth a viewing if you can catch the scarce openings.
Paintings from The Church of Love and Confusion show at The Middle East Café Gallery starting November 3rd, remaining on display throughout the month. Reception Saturday, November 3rd at 7pm.
The Middle East Gallery is located at 472/480 Massachusetts Ave, Cambridge, MA. For details, visit www.RodWebber.com
