Influenced by the Sun
Opening Reception November 21, 2013 7-9pm
My brother once made a bet with my then nine years old daughter that the sun was, in fact, not going to come up the following day. The bet was of real money and my daughterʼs initial reaction was of glee and the joy of easy money gotten from an adult who should know better. My brother, knowing that his niece was impressionable, spoke of a world of one long endless night and all the many consequences. ~ ”Essentially a world made still by the imminent prospect of the death of everything.” In the hours that ensued, something so taken for granted lay in the balance and was made alive with wonder and amazement. My daughter was deeply concerned.
The concern of this show is nothing less than the mystery that is the sun.
