Goddesses & Gods, at Lisa Derrick Fine Arts

June 22 - July 20

Goddesses & Gods, the largest gathering of deities ever on Chung King Road, an exhibition of divinities so colossal, it requires two galleries to contain it!

Conceived and curated by Lisa Derrick, “Goddesses & Gods” explores concepts of apoptosis, apotheosis and auto-theogony through a range of artists drawn primarily from the Los Angeles area. Works embrace both classical and modern techniques; themes pull deities, traditional and self-created, from sacred texts, folk traditions, and artistic gnosis while eschewing rigid fundamentalism in both inspiration and execution.

With a background seeped in folklore and mythology, as well as Western religious and esoteric history, gallerist Lisa Derrick curates an expansive array of artists from Los Angeles, with Las Vegas, Ireland and Mexico also represented.
