Lindsay Gallery, 986 N High Street, Columbus, Ohio 43201
The paintings in Only Bangers are about the power of myth. They speak to our relationship with mythology and the importance of stories in our world today. The stories behind these paintings speak to the things we all have in common. They speak to the same fears and anxieties we all must face and overcome. These paintings are about empowerment. The raw surfaces they are painted on are meant to act as mirrors, to reflect and radiate the boldness and fierceness the characters captured on them exude. When we better ourselves, we better our world. When we become stronger, the world becomes stronger. Be encouraged. Be the best you. Only Bangers.
