PennDesign* Alumni Exhibition
I participated in the group exhibition of PennDesign Alumni, SoHo Show-Off which was up from January 16 - 29, 2008 at the Louis K. Meisel Gallery in New York City. I exhibited these two works.
This is my statement from the catalog.
"The ancient Greeks understood the spirit of place. That palpable feeling of the energy present in a particular spot or feature in the landscape. Grottoes, meadows, lakes, groves, rocks, trees, streams and even fountains were all inhabited or guarded by a particular nymph - the spirit of the place. The nymph could be immortal or not, depending on the nature of where and what they were associated with. A stream could dry or a grotto stay the same for centuries; each shares its particular character with the nymph. Morningside Folly is my attempt at capturing that spirit of place and making it visible. It is at once the essence of the place and the effects of time that are my focus."
