Arcane Archetypes Solo Exhibition

    Last Rites Gallery presents Arcane Archetypes, new work by Beau Stanton, in what will be his first solo show at the gallery and will feature 10 paintings. Arcane Archetypes will center on the Major Arcana of the Tarot and stem from Stanton’s exploration of its various symbolism, imagery and mysticism.

    Stanton’s paintings connect old world traditions and visuals with modern technology and ideals to communicate universal tenets. Arcane Archetypes integrates Stanton’s quintessential images and pervading themes in his usual fanfare of color and filigree to interpret the esoteric nature of the Tarot. Conducive to his process of layering oil paint with ornate silkscreen compositions, this body of work offers an examination of the mystical layers that forms the principles of the Tarot and its divine and practical application throughout history. Embarking on the age-old tradition of the Tarot allows for a reinterpretation of a timeless study while adapting its essence to reevaluate its concurrency with both the individual and the evolution of man.
