Visionaries: The Art of the Fantastic
Bodies fused with metal; dark foreign landscapes; angels; creatures; naked bodies draped over surreal backgrounds; these are but a few of the examples of what you will experience at Queensborough Community College (QCC) Visionaries: The Art of the Fantastic gallery. This exhibition features around 40 works of art, varying in technique, style, and form. Isaac Abrams, Miguel Tio, Bienvenido Bones Banez, Jr. and H.R. Giger are among the renowned artists who are sharing their work at the QCC (Queensborough Community College) Art Gallery. Giger’s work can be seen in the 1979 film “Alien” for which he was awarded an Oscar for Best Achievement in Visual Effects. The diversity displayed in this otherworldly exhibition is sharpened by the unique vision each work radiates. Every artist’s voice echoes surrealism and each work creates its own world with its own story. The depth of the exhibition is like a collaboration of dreams and nightmares working within the gallery space to create an entire universe; a truly fantastic one.
