Paul Endres Jr, Conquer, 2016

We are so pleased to be able to feature Endres’ work in our virtual exhibition ‘Street Stories,’ up now at Brassworks Gallery. Click here to see the show:

Endres has imagined a mega-narrative about the end of the world. He says “All of my paintings take place after the materialization and collapse of history known as The Burden. Those who were not immediately crushed under the debris falling from the sky, or lost to the subsequent plagues and riots, were forced to survive in the ruins of the world.”

This painting is a scene from the narrative that “takes place years after the Cephalophoric War, when all of New Boston’s power players are dead or gone. During this time the gang of sugar-hungry ‘Lost Boys,’ who believe themselves to be immortal, use the decaying and overgrown city as their personal playground.” This painting is a “is a Washington crossing the Delaware-esq image of some of the Lost Boys headed into new Boston.”
