Cordial Christ Blues

In the current series of paintings, Cordial Christ Blues, to be unveiled in an exhibition at Sydney’s Arthouse Gallery between April 9 and 26, local artist Damien Kamholtz creates a frisson between faith and fable. The knowing innocence of Alice in her Wonderland meets the wisdom and forbearance of heroic sagas from the Bible. The great and mythic stories that are high moral tales of the conflict between good and evil are played out on canvasses washed with pale glazes that reveal as in shadowed memories, the ghosts of supplicants. The iconic ritual of halos and the key players of Christ and the Madonna are there with a minor cast of saints but while they show us faces of beauty and innocence there is a predatory darkness that glitters in the wings of this theatre that is both sacred and profane.
