Herakut - Loving the Exiled at 941 Geary Gallery

941 Geary is pleased to present the new works of German artistic duo, Herakut, whose
exhibition, Loving the Exiled, will open April 21, 2012 at 941 Geary. The opening will be
free and open to the public, and the show will run until May 29, 2012.

Herakut’s earth tones are layered upon each other, creating images that blend in with the environment around them. Though it’s not just in palette through which the work presents an interest in nature. The people and animals that stand at the center of Herakut’s pieces are created as a commentary on human nature, on the ups and downs of all the small wars we fight within ourselves. 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, un invited but perhaps expected.
