Last Rites Gallery Ends Year With Gloom and Doom

12.22.09 Will Sherman

Ghastly images of conjoined twins and sinister forest people feature in Last Rites Gallery’s year end exhibitions. Craig LaRotonda’s “From The Ashes Of Angels” highlights a series of reflective paintings of pale people that Johnny Depp finds both “enchanting and unnerving.” Meanwhile, Swamp Thing-type creatures tromp through Paul Gerrard’s foggy scenes, digitally rendered in “Skins From The Shadow Circle.”

“From the Ashes of Angels,” “Skins From the Shadow Circle,” December 5 – December 27, Last Rites Gallery, 511 W. 33rd St
