Joe Sorren: When the Rain Comes
April 6, 2012; 8-11 PM
Joe Sorren injects a surreal mood through soft, eerie imagery, thick brushstrokes, and animalistic figures caught in motion.
Created with oil on panel, Sorren’s newest body of work,
When the Rain Comes is a story about darkness and light.
“Sometimes, when things are darker in life, you can find yourself in front of doors you didn’t know where there before.
This is a show about walking though those doorways and the light that can be found in the sincere letting-go-ness of things.”
Sorren’s artwork has appeared in various publications, including
The New Yorker, Time and Rolling Stone. Warner Bros. and Atlantic Records have also used his art. His 40 x 30 feet mural adorns Heritage Square in Flagstaff, Arizona.
This is Joe’s fifth exhibition at La Luz de Jesus Gallery. No Need to RSVP.

Scott Hove: My Own Private Apocalypse
April 6, 2012; 8-11 PM
In My Own Private Apocalypse, Scott Hove continues his ongoing ‘Cakeland’ theme, utilizing traditional cake decorating tools and techniques with acrylic media to render extremely realistic looking wall-hanging cakes and immersive kaleidoscopic installations. These are then accessorized with decidedly un-cakelike items such as taxidermy jaws, hypodermic needles, plastic insects and other objects which counterbalance the typical sense of happiness and positive expectation associated with a delicious looking cake. In this exhibition Scott engages the viewer in a roller coaster ride of sensation: from the experience of beauty and joy, to the deconstruction of beauty, struggle, greed and artifice, the distortion of volume and space, and then a return to beauty and joy.
This is Scott’s second biennial April exhibition at La Luz de Jesus Gallery. We’ve also showcased his work at Scion Space and in Art Space Shreveport. For video of Scott on the Cooking Channel, click here.
