“In my own Country I am in a Far-Off Land…”
~Francois Villon, 1431 – 1463
In his new exhibition of mixed media paintings and prints at Richland College, Hell Bound Road, Eddy Rawlinson continues to explore the various layers of political/pop-culture images of the hero/anti hero in the mainstream and alternative media with its connection to cultural behavior and language.
Rawlinson asks, “Where does one find the evil doers, in a far-off desert land or jungle afar? Or could they be among the standard bearers of justice and freedom for all, as long as you look like they do, have the same economic status, and think like they think? Who then is the hero to fight the good fight for the good of all and vanquish this evil from our presence. It is not so clear anymore and becomes more difficult with each passing day, but we must not despair or never give up hope.”
Rawlinson exhibits extensively within the Dallas/Fort Worth area, recently showing at the Mighty Fine Arts Gallery in Dallas, Texas Christian University, and Artspace 111 in Fort Worth. He also exhibits with the art group The Cirkit of Mythos, a collaborative engagement with local artists Omar Hernandez, Jason Reynaga and Greg Mansur. Rawlinson is currently the Gallery Director and an Instructor at Dallas County Community College, El Centro Campus in Dallas, Texas.
Please join us for the opening reception and gallery talk on Thursday, Oct 15th, 2009 from 12-1 PM. The Brazos Gallery is located on Richland College Campus in the Crockett Building, Room C-140.
