Shoebox Projects is pleased to announce “Embodied: St. Anthony and the Desert of Tears” a residency and exhibition featuring the work of Leonard Greco.

Neo-Baroque artist Leonard Greco is using his love of world mythology, Roman Catholic saints, and the Italian Renaissance to create a contemporary artist hermitage within the project space.
The installation draws from the narrative of “St Anthony of the Desert” and the fact that St Anthony resisted supernatural temptations during his desert sojourn. In this exhibition, Greco will explore his own struggles, making mixed media works that reflect on the temptations of lust, boredom and the perils of isolation.
