Previews: Joao Ruas – “Geist” @ Jonathan LeVine Projects

This Saturday, May 13, Joao Ruas will be opening a solo at Jonathan LeVine Projects in New Jersey entitled Geist. The concept behind the new work, according to the Sao Paulo-based artist, was inspired by The Phenomenology of the Spirit by G. W. F. Hegel, and uses “modern and ancient metaphorical allegories, religious scenes and historical characters to address attempts to change the inexorable universal pendulum of creation and destruction through endless ages. The new paintings look to be great examples of Ruas’ haunting work with mysterious characters and mythical beasts entwined in surreal compositions.
