Rinsed Hands and Wrenched Hearts art by Coby Ellison @ FOE Gallery (Opens Friday 13)
EVENT-PRESS: St. Louis Heavy Metal artist and gallery owner Coby Ellison visits FOE Gallery with his solo show “Rinsed Hands and Wrenched Hearts”. Ellison found his way to FOE through connections with Manifesto Press. FOE and Manifesto collaborate again to bring Ellison and his prints, illustration and sculptures to Massachusetts for an opening on Friday January 13th from 6-9 pm. The show will be on display through February 5th.
PRESS-CONTINUED: Coby Ellison’s recent works, a series titled the Babylon Report, are an investigation of historical relationships and coincidences that accompany positions of power, divine rule, conquest and the ever-changing symbolic representations of good and evil. His work has shown internationally, graced the cover of albums by the likes of Fister and The Lion’s Daughter, and will be featured in the upcoming book Metal and Hardcore Bible (Frechmann). Whether it’s his prints that look like they come from straight early religious text or his ceramic sculptures molded from modified action figures, there’s no doubt why Ellison’s work is coveted by those in the extreme music scene.
Check out images posted on THIS FB-album! The darkness of the imagery is both repulsive and utterly fascinating visually, IMHO!
