‘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.
