Dark Crystal, Roxanne Jackson’s two person show with Kevin Andrew Curran opens on September 25th at Reservoir Art Space in Queens, NY.
Reservoir Art Space is pleased to announce Dark Crystal, where sparkling hole-riddled astronauts meet macabre twisted mermaids. Two worlds collide in this presentation of imaginary explorations into deep inner realms of the human psyche. Kevin Andrew Curran’s astronauts inhabit voids of space while Roxanne Jackson’s creatures derive from mysterious water depths. These fantastical beings exhibit a willingness to exist together for a time, in order to locate a shard of humanity that will bring balance back to the universe.
