This new album brings back a nostalgic heavy style that metal world needs. The amount of sheer aggressive speed mixed with violent breakdowns is a combo that cannot be beaten. Ego Death is a pain staking roller coaster that will snap your neck and have you contemplating your existence in this world. Today, Deathcore can be programmed to the utmost extreme and then be released to the world with out a group to perform it. FYM strives on pushing the intensity up at all times while keeping the music real, so brutality will match the live performance.

    Info: Buffalo, NY – Eleven Twenty Projects is delighted to announce Shasti O’Leary Soudant’s upcoming exhibition, Do Not Mistake Our Softness for Weakness. O’Leary-Soudant’s newest sculptures focus on simultaneity and navigate the multifaceted and complex qualities ascribed to the feminine and the masculine. Formal rigor, Neomodernist simplicity and complex cultural concerns amalgamate in two inviting bodies of sculptural work: Priapic Yin and Burst Star. The Priapic Yin march through the gallery en masse, physically and tangibly illustrating faulty gender-based distinctions. We understand this both from an intellectual and primal perspective – each undulating form connects with its counterparts, flowing brightly through space and making plain the intricacies and issues of attributes like softness or hardness belonging to one gender or the other. The sculptures are colorful, large, playful, sensual, serious, and socially germane. They beg to be touched and the visitors are welcome to do just that. Continuing this conversation, the large and small Burst Star works appear soft and appealing from afar, but surprise the viewer up close with their sharp points. Dual visions, multipurpose perspectives, and a reminder that appearances are deceiving when paired with assumption, the artist relates them to the construction, maintenance and violation of contemporary social contracts: “You want to touch them but you know you shouldn’t.” Please join us for the opening reception on First Friday, September 7, 2018 from 6 – 9pm.

    Info: Lax was born in Olean, visited, lectured, published and died here, buried in the cemetery of the Franciscan friars at St. Bonaventure. He met Merton, born in France and raised in England, at Columbia, where they wrote for the university literary magazine, The Jester. Merton gobbled up life, jazz, booze, romance, writing and religion. He considered life as a Roman Catholic priest. He asked Lax, an observant Jew, how he might pursue. Lax suggested: "Become a saint." Merton taught at St. Bonaventure and in 1941 entered the rigorous life in the Trappist Abbey of Gethsemane in Kentucky. His life was one of prayer and writing about it, as well as social justice. He made monotype prints, published two anti-art zines and made photographs, largely hidden until recently. Lax wandered the Western world, wrote for Time, the New Yorker, Parade and Jubilee. The taught, was a clown in an Italian Circus, volunteered in soup kitchens, and left the U.S. for the Greek Islands, living at remove. He returned for an artist's residency at Artpark, an exhibition at The Burchfield Penney Art Center, and received an award at St. Bonaventure, visiting relatives. He made long skinny contemplative poems and he also made photographs, largely hidden until recently. This is an exhibition of the two friend's work - the complete run of the broadside zine Lax called Pax. And a selection of his most aesthetically daring photographs, all from the Lax Archive at St.Bonaventure. Merton' drawings, Zen influenced monotypes and photographs were selected from the Merton Archive at Columbia and from a private collector. Curated by Anthony Bannon, emeritus director of the Burchfield Penny Art Center and Paul Spaeth the rare Books and Special Collections Librarian at St. Bonaventure, and curator of the Thomas Merton Archives and the founder/curator of the Robert Lax Archives.

    Info: Over the past 10 years more than 424 people have been killed in the United States in mass shootings. In 2016 alone, 38,658 people were killed by guns. On average there are 13,000 homicides a year in the US. At least 108 million people were killed in wars in the twentieth century. The Burchfield Penney Art Center at SUNY Buffalo State today announced gun violence will be the subject of Enough Killing!, a new installation opening Friday, July 13 as part of M&T Second Friday. Co-curated by Don Metz and Scott Propeack, the exhibition will feature 12 representations that address the devastation of war and ever-increasing gun violence social crisis. Some of the artists include Robert Longo, Death Star (1993), a suspended sculpture comprised of 18,000 brass and copper bullets; Kathie Simonds, American Classic: Our Holy Wars, 1991; Joseph Orffeo (1926-2013), Iraq, 2003; and Paul Sharits (1943-1993), Infected Pistol, 1983. Enough Killing! will be on view thru Sunday, October 28, 2018. “The exhibition is an assemblage of powerful messages within our archives speaking to the indignity of gun violence. Since we as humans seem unable to do much to harness or control our rage, it is important that we at least stop look, and admit the fact that we are responsible,” said Don Metz, associate director and head of public programs. “Gun violence is not only in our schools, but in neighborhoods, on our police forces, and part of our international relationship plan. Through the work of various artists, playful, beautiful and poignant, we stop look and think. “ “Killing each other is something that humans have done throughout our history. War and violence are often the ways that we learn and mark time,” said Scott Propeack, chief curator and associate director and chief curator. “Since we are always killing, it comes as no surprise that we have become good at it. So much so, that one person it seems can kill dozens and dozens.

    Info: The artistry of Niagara Falls, NY-based artist Jonathan Rogers reveals a complex and sometimes thorny life. His art ranges from tormented dancing children with representations of storybook life in the background, to a seemingly biblical worship of a protective god. Exhibition of how he creatively finds balance navigating the world through art. His work is off-putting to those who shun religion, a beacon to those that feel he speaks to their spiritual sense of the world. Motivated by a personal experience of faith as touchstone, and a cultish practice of religion as a demon, he ascends to make sense of the world through his work which only adds to the question of where he is landing. Rogers is, in many ways, the most traditional of artists. “I am supposed to be an artist,” he once said. “I draw and paint and dress the part without trying very hard, comes naturally. My lifetime obsession is pursuing “nothing definite”. At last, finally, I have come up with a way of defining it.” Born in Toronto, Ontario, his lengthy artistic career began by working as an apprentice printer in 1954. In 1956-59 he attended the Ontario College of Art & Design. Rogers has taught courses on drawing at Newton Abbot College of Art, Devonshire England and School of Design, Sheridan University, Ontario, Canada. He has been celebrated and recognized as an internationally awarded animator. If you were a child in the late 1970s, the animated special “Witch’s Night Out’, that starred the voices of the late Gilda Radner and Catherine O’Hara might look familiar. Rogers created this nationally acclaimed film starring ‘Winifred the Witch.' Jonathan’s life has followed a rocky path, instructor to illustrator then animator to vagrant. A spiritual lecturer dismayed by the reality behind the curtain of the American mega-church, his artwork looks back at a life filled with success, failure, and reinvention. These are all grand statements, but at the core of his work is the way we all assess and re-assess our experiences.

    Info: On November 2, 1914, Charles E. Burchfield wrote about dreaming of a group of American elm trees that grew in Salem, Ohio, near his childhood home. “The Three Trees”, as they were locally known, would appear first in a sketch from July 2, 1915. These same trees resurface later in the masterwork of The Three Trees, 1932-1946. By the time the painting was finished, two of the trees were destroyed by a tornado and the third was cut down for the construction of new houses. Burchfield’s love of trees is the focus of the exhibition. Burchfield’s Arboretum. In July of 1947, Burchfield went on a trip with his wife, Bertha, that ended in Cook Forest, in Pennsylvania. After visiting an old growth section, he wrote: It is impossible for me to write here anything adequate about the beauty of Cook’s Forest. It was beyond anything I had ever imagined—I can think of nothing better than Longfellow’s impressive lines in the prologue to his Evangeline “This is the Forest Primeval”. The glory of these ancient gigantic hemlocks is beyond me to describe. Two years later in May of 1949 Burchfield wrote about another dream, this time lamenting the destruction of various kinds of trees. Dream Fragment—In Salem—High Street—great open fields with gigantic trees, elms, buttonwoods and maples, with blue-jays flying about—It seemed as if someone on the excuse that the trees were a menace to surrounding houses had cut off the upper branches much to my disgust. The “scars” where even the highest branch were cut off, were as big as ordinary stumps. A work from late in Burchfield’s life, Summer Solstice (In Memory of the American Chestnut Tree), 1961-1966, is a eulogy for a lost giant. The American chestnut was devastated by a fungus, which was accidently introduced into North America in the first decade of the twentieth century.

    Info: Feminism, poetry and the vibrant symbolism of the female experience Jennifer Regan (1934 –2016) threaded into powerful quilts to siphon triumph, tragedy, death, mourning and rebirth are the focus of the exhibition. For much of her early life, Regan lived what many would consider a privileged “American Dream.” In 1959, she married Edward (Ned) V. Regan, who later served as Erie County Executive and New York State Comptroller. Salvaged: The Stitched Narratives of Jennifer Regan will open Friday, September 14, 2018 as part M&T Second Friday and be on view thru Sunday, January 6, 2018. Born and raised in Orchard Park, NY, she attended Buffalo Seminary, and earned undergraduate and graduate degrees from Smith College and University at Buffalo. In the 1960s, Jennifer Regan emerged as a well-established writer in Western New York, publishing poetry in journals and reviewing books for the Buffalo News. As a highly regarded political family, they were dubbed the “Buffalo’s Kennedys” during Ned Regan’s tenure as County Executive. Despite seemingly having it all, Jennifer Regan was troubled. When they divorced in 1988, her self-identity changed dramatically. Struggling with the loss of married life and a wide array of emotions, she turned to art to exhaust anguish writing poetry to narrate womanhood within the contexts of patriarchal power. These messages transferred to quilts to create stitched narratives displayed on walls. Initially, these security blankets grieved the loss of a former life as well as accepting her new role as a single, middle-aged woman. Regan created over 100 stitched narratives between 1989 and 2006. Not particularly religious, she focused on certain Biblical stories in some of her work. Regan identified heavily with both Eve and “Mrs. Noah,” and used their stories to comment on personal frustration.
