The Garden of Gethsemane is a solo exhibition by Jacoub Reyes that explores the relationships between religion, mortality and the human condition through a series of woodcuts and prints. Reyes embodies the plight and influence of colonialism on native groups with images saturated in symbolism and religious mysticism. Using well-known archetypes and philosophical theories, he analyzes the relationship between ideologies that influence cultures and their similarities.
