Dia de Los Muertos at Proximity Gallery

October 1, 2009


Tomorrow is the opening of The Autumn Society’s final exhibition for 2009. The show is titled “Dia de los Muertos” (Day of the Dead), after the Mexican celebrated holiday, in which families bring offerings (such as food and mementos) to remember and celebrate their loved ones that have passed away. The holiday is celebrated between October 31st through November 2nd.

The show will consist of 40+ pieces of art from the Autumn Society’s finest artists, each interpreting “Dia de los Muertos” in their own unique way. Above is my piece, “Juego Terminado” (aka “Game Over”). The game over screen in video games, signifying the death of your character, is typically a negative thing, but since the holiday is more of a celebratory take on death, I wanted it to have a positive and festive sentiment.
