Description

This might just be the most dangerous art exhibit you'll see all year. It seems that San Jose artist Adam Porwol paints with a death wish. Why else would he use poisonous and even radioactive paints--almost exclusively--for the works in his first solo show. Using antiquated and dangerous paint-making methods, like hand-mixing egg tempera with arsenic and lead, Porwol puts his life on the line for his art. "If Looks Could Kill" is a series of beautiful and seductive--even deadly--female portraits. There's no need to fear, however. The Arsenal has the paintings sealed, so everything is safe to view.
