Herakut‘s new solo show “Loving the Exiled” opens this Saturday at 941 Geary gallery in San Francisco and we’ve rounded up a few great shots of the amazing German artistic duo painting in preparation.
“Loving the Exiled” deals with figures/symbols that have been thrust away from society, charged with guilt in some way, and used as scapegoats in an effort to simplify complex problems. With faces partially turned to glance at the viewer, the figures look at the viewers as if we have stumbled upon their lives, uninvited but perhaps expected. They gaze out at us with eyes both sad and resigned, asking nothing of us but a basic empathy.
Watch out for our interview coming out next week!
