Balance. All life on Earth depends on it. However, human’s impact on the world is disrupting the natural cycle, suffocating the planet. We have reached a breaking point as human beings teeter on the edge of an uncertain future. Whether it’s man-made or natural, another disaster is always right around the corner. A Smiled Distress, a duel exhibition featuring the artwork of Hellbent & John Breiner, brings forth the brutal truth of a world in transition and the ultimate fragility of life itself.

A Smiled Distress mirrors the myth of Cassandra, as one foresees the future, yet the warnings will never be heeded. Hellbent and John Breiner’s art juxtaposes the duality of life and death through our acceptance of a fate and the inevitable outcome. Their work reflects the strains of the Earth through a beautiful and enchanting interpretation of a planet in distress.

Hellbent & John Breiner approach their work from different angles, both complimenting and conflicting one another, with a means to a common goal. As the world further declines into a state of anguish, the artist’s work becomes a prophecy of things to come. A Smiled Distress matches the beautiful with ominous through each artists unique understanding of the world.
