January 10th, 49 B.C. – Julius Caesar crossed the Rubicon invading Rome in violation of Rome’s laws, causing a civil war. “Alea iacta est,” Caesar cried, as his army advanced past the waters of the Rubicon, meaning, “The die has been cast.”

More than two thousand years later, Daniel St. George releases his new body of work entitled “Burning Bridges.” Just like Julius Caesar, St. George comes to grips with his own difficulties with friendships, love and life, ultimately making decisions that will never be undone and crossing his own Rubicon.

Like all St. George’s work, Burning Bridges is autobiographical, letting the viewers into his life to see his relationships and conflicts with women, family, friends and other artists, as well as his social dilemmas, paranoia, self loathing and dark humor. The exhibition will consist of over thirty new pieces, all on stained and scorched paper, allowing the audience to see the struggles the artist has with the subject matter as well as the media.

“The older I get the less I know; the I more confused I become. I want to create honest work on my feeling and struggles with life. I’m not really interested if people can relate or not to my pain or work, as it’s mine,” comments St. George. “I feel like I have lost so many friends and relationships over the last few years due to money, disagreements over ideals, new love interests and just drifting apart. This is my expression of these moments…”

Along with new body of work, St. George will be creating a limited edition t-shirt exclusively for Stussy SF, which will be for sale at the store that comes with 32-page zine.
