Things That Go Bump in the Night

Things That Go Bump in the Night

Carolina Del Busto

Night creeps over day, and soon your entire existence is engulfed in darkness. Figures appear and take the shape of nameless creatures; half-formed faces pop in and out of sight. Suddenly, you wake. It was just a dream, a night terror. Frightening and unexplainable, such visions can inspire equally frightening and unexplainable art. Take, for instance, Cuban-American artist Arturo Rodriguez’s latest exhibit, “The School of Night,” which showcases his newest works based on his late-night wanderings. Curator Juan A. Martinez explains, “The drawings represent salient aspects of his home made unfamiliar by semidarkness, the eerie silence of late night, and his restless state of mind. There are images of nightmarish masks from his collection interacting with shadows of himself and his wife in disorienting spaces filled with vague objects. The night reigns and mystery abounds.” The exhibit’s opening reception will include both visual art and poetry, with select readings from Rodriguez’s book The School of Night.
