Shooting Gallery (SF) is pleased to present artist Paul Chatem’s latest works, Another Man’s Hero, opening April 14, 2012 from 7-11 pm. The exhibition is free and will be open to the public for viewing through May 5, 2012.
Another Man’s Hero is a new collection of paintings which explore perceptions of identity. Chatem delves into the idea that however one person sees themselves, their friends, neighbors, or community may see them as something completely different. One man’s success is another man’s failure; one person’s death is another’s victory; one person’s lover may be another’s competition; one man’s hero may be another man’s villain.
