The Hellmouth is a medieval motif depicting the damned and the unrepentant swallowed by the gaping jaws of a demonic beast. The Hellmouth reminds you to wake up and smell the sulfur.
“This is the worst political landscape I have ever seen.” Ruthann Godollei is in dismay. “It is not just one errant leader or a set of craven elected office-holders, it is a corrosive cultural climate raining fire, gleeful at causing others pain.”
Drawing on the bluster and bombast of antique circus imagery the artist researched at Circus World Museum in Baraboo, Wisconsin, Godollei’s work drags up the twisted and pathetic underbelly of the current presidential administration’s “big show.”
