The Reckoning is Almost Here!

We began the task of installing Christopher Ulrich's latest exhibition today. As you can see in the photos below, these are large format paintings–the likes of which you just don't see anymore. This third and final cycle in the Christ Chronocrater Series brings fine art painting to levels not seen since the Rococo era. Ulrich's allegorical imagery pervades a Zodiacal exploration of western myth and religion. The centerpiece is a sixteen feet wide and eight feet tall Last Supper which substitutes pre-Christian templates for the apostles. You can catch a glimpse below in a pre-framed state. The remainder of the photographs give a sense of the size and scope of the rest of the exhibition: a full gallery takeover by the greatest painter of his generation.

All paintings are oil on wood panel, and all but the Last Supper are resin-coated, adding an almost three-dimensional feel that is sure to cause Stendahl Syndrome.

The Reckoning opens on Friday at 8PM.
