Imagine the charcoal gray parlor of Jesus Christ Super Star circa 1985. Jiri Georg Dokoupils extra terrestrial blue Jesus strumming Haim Steinbachs skull and crossbones electric guitar while sipping black coffee. In the adjoining piece Glenn Browns Saint who has been scarred by unsuspected colors wears his halo while meditating before Sherrie Levines melting psychedelic black and white photographs of gothic Cathedrals. Simultaneously a dog crawls the wall. Mathew Weirs delicate and horrific treasures grace the Mantel of an unlit fireplace.
