Turmoil In My Toybox at Toybox Inc., weaves together Rafael Delacruz’s painting on paper, collage and video.

About

Originally conceived as a show for Toybox Inc. a mythological project space in the artist’s home, this show includes works from Delacruz’s peers and collaborators (Last Renaissance and Quintessa Matranga) as well as new work designed specifically with this show in mind.

Expanding upon themes from Delacruz’s recent show at The Middler, Ghost 2 Phantom Star 1, Delacruz’s video, painting, and sculpture practice engage a narrative drawn from a Mexican folktale; La Mano Peluda (or "The Hairy Hand"). As the tale goes, The Hairy Hand used to belong to a man who was killed during the inquisition, then chopped up and buried in an old Native Indian cemetery. His hand is said to have come back to life to seek revenge on his enemies while they slept.
