INFERNO OF THE INNOCENTS

SOLO SHOW AT THE CROCKER ART MUSEUM

SACRAMENTO

EXHIBITION

 

 

January 29 – April 24, 2011

Opening reception:

January 28th 7 - 9:30 pm

 

 

 

Like a modern-day Goya, Gottfried Helnwein’s art addresses themes of inhumanity, violence and the virtue of personal expression. Over more than four decades, the artist has pursued a singular, radical vision realized in monumental paintings and photographs. With stark and probing psychological intensity, he critiques not only the past, but present-day veneers, jolting us from the comfort of complacency. Such confrontations are informed by his upbringing in post-war Vienna, Austria—an experience that fueled the artist’s passion for truth and tolerance. Today, Helnwein immerses himself in our ever-changing cultural landscape, working from his studio in Los Angeles.
