{CTS} creative thriftshop is proud to present “Lake of Fire” an exhibit of art and film based on a scene from the feature film “The Israelites” by George Lowey. Filling the gallery with video projection, computer graphics, watercolors, and paintings, this artist will transform the space into a mythical promised land.

The new animated short, never before seen, will beam on to the walls and out of the windows, setting the tone for the show with it’s street preacher philosophies of the days of reckoning soon to inhabit the world, which could only be described as the “beginning and the end of humanity”. Visualizing tracks by the epic Intergalactic Harmonies band, Sun Ra Arkestra, will heighten a fantastic array of tonal palettes of what has been referred to as an audio spiritual crisis. One of the lead tracks, “Space Is The Place”, extends into a chaotic and strange atmospheric soundtrack to the nature of the universe.

Lowey lives and works in Harlem, a place filled with personalities and spirits which transformed themselves into an array of tribe members of high priests, scroll masters, and alien residents. They travel through light and sound as intergalactic nomads. The Israelites are the chosen ones, ancient people in a future world, sent to help the laymen of earth save their home from fear and hysteria that wrapped around New York City portrayed as Babylon. They found, underneath the surface of earth, a series of endless tunnels left behind by the abanded subway system which will lead them to black holes in Brooklyn where their dreaded nemesis Evil Lord Cock Roach holds his lair. Will they defeat him in time? Is it possible to save the human race from “The Lake of Fire?”
