Originally written for the Love Politik show at Blackfish Gallery, The Disfigurement of Our Most Cherished Ideals in Pursuit of Their Physical Embodiment finally has its words.
“…Despite attempts to map the unknowable expanse of reality, the totality of existence is axiomatically itself rather than the means used to perceive it. When, however, in the face of our greater humanity, the pursuit of the ideal takes precedence over the real an unavoidable conflict occurs. No matter the passion or progress made in pursuit of the ideal, the reality of the world unavoidably diverges and it is often our reaction to this shortcoming that forms the ultimate outcome of our pursuits…”
My political piece “The Disfigurment of Our Most Cherished Ideals in Pursuit of Their Physical Embodiment” will be part of The Love Politik show opening this First Thursday. The show will run through November, and can be visited either in person or online at Blackfish.com. I will also be doing a brief Q&A at 8:40 pm.
After a long break, I happy to post the short piece The Cave of the Prophet. Here is a preview:
“That such a coexistance is possible however does not reveal itself through an overcoming of the natural law we had perceived as absolute, but rather through a realization of the subjective nature of its delineation. The basis of their truth was built upon an alter of straw, but the overcoming of it is not accomplished by either burning or further building, but rather by seeing something else altogether: that the idol was built from our own hands, and that the manifest truth require neither alters, nor scaffolding.”
I’m excited to be showing at four openings this month. Especially fun, I’ll be part of two different group shows focusing on different aspects of the concept of sin. Here is the summery:
-A solo show at Float On as part of their visual arts program – Sin? at Art at the Cave – The Seven Deadly Sins and the Lovers Eye at Splendorporium – First Friday Open Studios at East Creative Collective
Its going to be a busy month next month as well as I work on an new environmental piece to be part of the For the Seventh Generation. A collaborative eco-mural for the Elizabeth Jones Art Center.
