Apotrope
LA LUZ DE JESUS GALLERY
May 7-June 5, 2022
Opening Reception May 7

La Luz de Jesus Gallery is pleased to present "Apotrope" a solo exhibition by artist E.E. Kono. Kono’s work is interested in the fluidity of time and culture. Her images reflect on how stories and symbols create meaning that’s passed from one society to another, transcending cultures and offering a connection between diverse viewpoints.⁠

This exhibition incorporates folklore and mythology from both east and the west, focusing on symbols imbued with apotropaic properties intended to protect and shield the viewer from evil. Symbols and stories, untethered by logic, reveal the essence of truth. Embraced and embodied into the images, these truths both channel nature’s light and ward off the inevitable shadows.⁠
