DENTON CRAWFORD | SAVAGE SANCTUARY
Reception Friday September 2, 6-9 pm
Free and open to the public
Part of the annual RIT Faculty in Focus Series, Gallery r presents Denton Crawford’s solo exhibition Savage Sanctuary. Crawford, a visiting assistant professor in RIT’s School of Art, will show painting, sculpture and installation inspired by pentecostal and pop imagery, addressing mysteries and oddities that spread from religious and cult mentalities. Mixing sacred iconography with popular science fiction, and using hyper-neon colors and spray paint, Crawford blends contemporary elements to question ancient and modern visions of spiritual devotion.
