Slow Down Pictures is the third art show with a soundtrack created by former Xpress designer and artist Nathanael Roney, and musician J Seger (Emily Easterly, VA/MD). “For the first time in the series, the individual works themselves have been titled, if not mostly for the sake of mentioning them here — Burden, Composure, Sh*t Cars — titles meant to fulfill those traditional purposes of explanation,” says a press release. Roney “considers the desire to articulate, even the instinct, to be the skin of great weakness. When used poorly, language assumes its power to conclude what it can only hypothesize. He often finds himself in defense from its influence, and at times, frustrated because of it. Seger on the other hand, just don’t give a f**k.” The show opens at PUSH Gallery on Friday, April 18, 7-10 p.m. pushtoyproject.com. Artwork by Nathanael Roney
