“Many mythologies credit a small cadre of gods with the creation of the earth. After that, things tend to get weird. The offspring and creatures that come after these gods tend to develop their own ideas about how things should be. A god can spring fully formed from the leg of its parent, or it may be of low birth and earn its rightful place on the mountain of the gods.
The conditions of the universe are defined by the collective impulses of all the gods. One god may create the lay of the land, another an animal that runs across it. Base emotions and Machiavellian posturing pit minor gods against their uncles and make the juicy stories that have fueled the making of art throughout history.
The creation of an artwork becomes a metaphor the creation of the universe, and the artist a god. All the artists in this show form a pantheon of gods, each with their own attributes and dominions. Each artists method of working is affected by their personal history and culture, as well as their more basic desires. Their works can be lush, expansive, brutal, and full of surprises.” - Paul Finch
