Two Skulls, Bronze, 2018
What happens when we die? Perhaps no other question has haunted the living as much as this. While books are written, rituals concocted, stories and legends proliferate and religions and cults claiming authority on such matters dot the landscape of the living, the answer continues to allude and the mystery baffle.
Without pretending to offer answers or to convince, the artists selected to participate in Mourning Glory offer a unique visual interpretation of death and it's occulted truths. These artists are selected from around the country for their mesmerizing, thoughtful and highly crafted interpretations on the subject. Mediums include painting, graphite, pen & ink and photography.
While we may never know the truth that lurks just behind that ever so slight veil we call death, perhaps the artwork presented here will offer itself as a tool of meditation and a means to expand our awareness of what it is to be truly alive.
The exhibition opens November 1, 2019 and runs through November 30, 2019. Gallery is open Wednesday through Saturday from 3pm-8pm or by appointment.
