Opening Party at Nitroglobus Gallery

Short notice, BUT hey it's worthwhile; soooo you are all invited to come to Dannyboyo his opening party tomorrow, Thursday 14th June from 0.30 - 2.30 pm SLT (21.30 - 23.30 hrs GMT + 1: i.e. Paris/Amsterdam time) at Nitroglobus Gallery.

Dannyboyo, a RL artist is using this exhibit as a trial run for a larger exploration and hopes for input of visitors. After viewing his work, you will recognize by some of the more obvious pieces that this is a body of work from manipulations of pornographic imagery.  However, Danny his interest in these images goes beyond whatever erotic appeal there might be. 

That porn exists is a phenomenon of who we are as a society. The majority of images found on the Internet or men's magazines are seldom associated with high art as much as just a means for sexual stimulation. Yet porn creates such strong reactions both positive and negative  - some crave it, some abhor and demonize it. With all that emotion there is something to be learned. 
The images range from where the original content is still obvious to where that content is removed, leaving only the exaggerated shape and color. 

Note: recognizing there are many societal problems associated with pornography, this show does not address them, focusing only on the appeal that the shapes, colors and subject matter might bring. 

Nitro & I invite you all to come and join us celebrating this opening, form your opinion and pass it to the artist.

There will be champagne and live music for all!
Cu tomorrow evening!
