Searching sometimes takes us on paths that travels outward, but what about the path that extends within? Continuing a pictoral discussion that began in 1898, Alvarez questions himself, asking “How deep are we willing to look”? Through which lens, which faith, asking which questions, which statements? This exhibition hopes to facilitate the discussion. Anthony’s work comes from a personal space, often using himself as the subject, working though moments of confusion, loss, anger, and reflection which challenges the viewer assess their own filters as they exist with the imagery.

About the Solo(s) Project House
The original Latin and Greek roots of PROJECT mean “something that comes before anything else happens”, and that is precisely what Solo(s) Project House is in a nutshell; evolving projects around a completed one. A space where gallery and studio are elbow to elbow, where the rigors of creation are coupled with the satisfaction of completion. The gallery is a sound stage upon which the house residents can imagine their months of creativity displayed from beginning to end. A true partner in the exhibit process, the artists are commissioned with a curatorial role that gives the visitor a 360 degree view of the creators vision. Far from an original white walled space, SPH is a home for experimental installations, avante-garde performance art and a myriad of media art. With an ever evolving pool of artists from various cultural and personal experiences SPH is a true melting pot of artistic expression.

SPH is located at 972 Broad St. in the arts district of downtown Newark, NJ. It is free and open to the public, wed – Friday from 12 – 6pm.
