Visual artist Dennis McNett unveiled his newest creations at The Stanton Chapter (176 Stanton St. btwn. Clinton and Attorney Streets) this past Friday. Titled The Old Horned Deity, McNett utilized artists to pen in his dark ideas.
I asked McNett where he got his inspiration from and he said it was during a road trip. The endless sky stimulated him and he wanted to convey how overwhelming it was. This was why he decided to cover the gallery walls in almost pastel psychedelic patterns.
The art on display is fantastic and extremely detailed. From the giant paper mache tiger, which is decorated in black and white tiger faces, to the large eagle, also paper mache, the tiny gallery felt overwhelmed with images.
McNett’s dark and sinister drawings will have you staring at the walls and sculptures for hours, rocked in the spell of immense nature.
