Christopher Rodrigues @ RARE Gallery - "...all of you on the good Earth"


Feel like going for a mesmeric rocket ship ride? Instead of risking a bad trip by means of the Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds route, check out the Christopher Rodrigues show at RARE Gallery. Rodrigues presents a series of digitally photoshopped/collaged planets, some of which depict an idyllic paradise, while others are quite unnerving with their intensely lethal environments. For some, this exhibition will make you feel real shitty for not recycling that cup of iced coffee.
