Russ Warren: The Denial of Death opens Saturday, March 11 at Les Yeux du Monde

Les Yeux du Monde is pleased to present a solo exhibition of new work by Russ Warren, The Denial of Death, which will run from March 11th to April 30th, 2023. The title of Warren's exhibition pays homage to the existentialist philosopher, Ernest Becker, and his book of the same name. Becker’s critique examines global perspectives on the subject of the human condition. He focuses in particular on different ideas surrounding mortality, such as the construction of social shields against the reality of human vulnerability in an impassive universe, and explores the relationship of madness and creativity in the revelation of “truth,” notions Warren has pondered in his art throughout his career. These ideas have acquired a special resonance in his recent work in which he grapples with the loss of his wife and Les Yeux du Monde gallery Founder and Director, Lyn Bolen Warren.
