Michael Cuffe (founder of the contemporary arts site Warholian) is curating an excellent group show at Modern Eden Gallery in San Francisco. I’m very happy to announce I’m invited to take part.
My piece is called “Aeon” which has many meanings: life, being, age, forever, eternity, and in scientific cosmology refers to the cyclical period between Big Bangs. Plato used the word to refer to the eternal world of ideas. I like to think that the Universe is only matched by our capacity to imagine.
UNIVERSE: Art of Existence will bring together artists from San Francisco and beyond on the subject of space, the cosmos, galaxies, celestial bodies, planets, stars, etc. I also welcome the larger outer paradigm of the Universe to relate to things of an atomic scale such as elements of quantum physics, atoms, energy streams, etc. in the art works if the artist chooses. There are many ways an artist can create with the Universe subject matter. I want every artist to feel free to choose to be direct with their work, or to think outside of the box if they choose – the Universe itself is both an outer and inner world.
A fun fact about this exhibition is that it is being put together under a short time frame. I’m looking for fresh work, and new inspiring artistic ideas. I’m hoping to see the artists really flow their best creative energy into this project – and see it as a joint effort – to be part of an exhibition that is also an experiment in creativity. It’s my belief, that after seeing so many bodies of work produced by a broad range of successful artists, that many works come together best under a deadline. It’s inspiring to realize the powerful potential of artists, and it’s so much more fun to see a large exhibition created in a short time frame! Especially from such a talented group!
