Pale Horse Lucha: ‘Night Terrors of the Owl Witch’

‘Pale Horse Lucha: The Art of Lucha Libre’ Solo Exhibit explores the uniquely human condition of existential conflict and challenges traditional perceptions of creative expression by bringing ideas to life through a diverse array of artistic mediums. 
Presented through the lens of the century-old Mexican tradition of Lucha Libre and drawing inspiration from world mythology, Eastern religions and science fiction novels, this series examines the timeless concepts of good and evil, life and death, and the journey into the afterlife as they collide with the supernatural elements of time travel, psychic abilities and alternate dimensions to spawn a mystical universe.
Within each of us, there is a hero waiting to emerge, but we are often held captive by our own fear, pain and self-doubt. Look inside, find your greatest ambition, invoke the courage to break the spell and conquer the dark forces keeping you from fulfilling your true potential. 
Renata Calavera finds herself trapped in a nightmare as she is taken prisoner by the Owl Witch who slaughtered her family.
