Chelsea Smith – Anonymous Bosch (Opening Reception)

June 11, 2019 - June 11, 2019

ATA Window Gallery

Anonymous Bosch is an installation exploring the connection and duality between genesis and annihilation. This is part of my reimagining of Bosch and multiple visions of another time, another reality. 

The work from this show comes from the detritus of: 
The Garden of Earthly Delights, Hieronymus Bosch 
Science fiction (Octavia Butler, Roadside Picnic, Annihilation)
Hildegard’s visions in 1141 Germany 
The 1906 San Francisco earthquake 
Saint Patrick driving the snakes from Ireland
1960s UFO stories
Urban dogman legends
The snakes of the Ozarks (Black Rats, Cottonmouths, Copperheads)
Country songs (Doug Kershaw, Merle Haggard, Tom T Hall)
The London fire of 1666
The Dyatlov Pass incident
