Friday, September 14 6-8pmOctober First Friday, October 5 5-8pmI have been thinking about the idea of breath, about the environment as a breathing entity, and about the rhythm of the act of breathing. Aspiration can mean hope as well as breath, and the link is apparent in the inherent connection of breathing to life, and of the necessity of both breathing and hope to life. In these paintings the breath of wind is visible on moving water, sometimes barely perceptible. It is also apparent in the seductive sway and intermingling of grasses. The evidence of breath is traced in the trail of leaves on the surface of shallow water and in patterns of light and shadow. It is a fragile world held together by slender threads.
