Athen B.Gallery is proud to announce,“Opus Die”,a solo exhibition by SanFrancisco artist, Beau Adams. Adams creates richly textured oil paintings on canvas and finely detailed watercolor works on paper with gold leaf applique. In a style inspired by classical pietas and Byzantine era icon paintings, the works introduce modern symbolism and ideologies. Beau creates images of holy men with patterned vestments and Russian gang tattoos, vivid and energetic oil paintings borrowing from classical composition that highlight a violence intertwined with religion throughout history. “OpusDie” is a play on the name of a religious sect Opus Dei, meaning “Work of God.” The exhibition opens on February 13th in Downtown Oakland with us at Athen B. Gallery.
