Christopher Ulrich: Illuminating His Dark Side

Now i had the great opportunity to check out a very interesting gallery this last Saturday with my two friends. we were not really expecting to see much, as this gallery was in a independent toy store in silverlake called Wackos, but also a gallery called La Luz De Jesus. this artist is fuckin crazy, i don't know what his childhood was like, or what kind things this dude is on, but holy-fuckin-shit, this art is amazingly beautiful, its interesting, bright, colorful, shocking, and makes you think.  if you wanna check out his stuff ill leave the address at the end of this blog, and a couple links to his work. check it out.

My Favorite is the crazy dead bitch with the goblet of shark blood! WTF! and  that man-shark's penis don't look like a fun FUCK. lol just saying. but on the real, this art in person, is fantastic, i recommend taking a little trip to Wacko, and peeping at a couple of these pieces.  the following is a little description from Chris Ulrich, a little depth and plunge into the world of this new exhibit. "Illuminator"

"Illuminator: The Royal Wedding" is a merger, a multi-faceted view of the crystal. Light and dark begin to dance within the circle. As the black continues it’s metamorphic process, the heat and flame of experience (and a time-crunching deadline) increase and the whitening begins. The white aspect of the alchemical process is the manifestation of a deep healing process. What happens is it gives birth to axioms.  These insights form the images, which create personalized alchemical recipes. Various figures from history -both real and imagined- have folded with cross-cultural counterparts significant to the artist. This manifested array marks the interior witnesses that revolve around the axis of the third part, that which has yet to be. All the works can be viewed simultaneously, as if they are all happening at the same time in different places and dimensions. Poetic conception is the moment in which a certain resonance rings out throughout the universe; dark beacons echoing across the depths of space and time. As the piper plays his hypnotic melodies so, too, the aspirant chooses his card. As the Promethean hare reveals nuclear magic to primates so, too, St. Margaret rises from the belly of the dragon. These moments capture a singular message. And that is an awakening with the white and black truly integrated. The red man and the white woman merge and not only give birth to the divine child but absorb its golden aura, which is the backdrop of the whole show. The entire universe spirals above, below, and within. The Royal Wedding heals all wounds, and establishes treaties amongst all houses; a rekindling of friendship; truce between enemies; the harvesting of fruits of labor; the newborn gifts between lovers; a new manifestation between father and son, god and warrior, mother, sister and friend. :Illuminator: The Royal Wedding" has revealed that there are no mistakes, no regrets and no lies. All parts of the greater whole bear witness that life is a magical process with "magic" defined as the transforming agent. The ability to make the unreal reality, to make impossibility possible, to bring a sense of inspiration, joy and insight is your birthright. We live in abundance, not scarcity. Everyone is invited to experience his or her own inner awakening by witnessing the call that the artist has truthfully labored to answer.

There is a great wedding occurring. The bride and groom could be myth and reality or science and religion. Seeming opposites come together. You have to choose: there are four paths with four different directions all going to the same place. All who attend this show will see various paths revealed. The Universe will be drawn back to its singularity. There is no expansion without contraction. Each guest is invited to contribute and share their own gifts within the court. May the masks come off and the archetypes dance. Who knows what they will bring forth. Amen, Glory, Peace, and Triumph!
