‘New Cosmic Horrors:
The Art of Thaniel Ion Lee’

Thaniel Ion Lee’s latest exhibition is based on “a mixture of Medieval and Baroque influences and a heavy dose of ‘horror vacui,’” he said. He’s not kidding — his drawings are dense, claustrophobic and seductive. Be prepared to spend some time; idle viewing is not recommended. “New Cosmic Horrors” features 21 digital drawings curated by Maiza Hixson, a former Louisvillian who now works at The Santa Barbara Center for Art, Science and Technology. The exhibition opened there and is now showing at Swanson Contemporary, Lee’s home gallery.
