Mystery in the Natural World
“MYSTERY in the NATURAL WORLD” a juried exhibition
CALADAN GALLERY features 27 national and international artists in its online juried exhibition entitled “MYSTERY in the NATURAL WORLD”.
Caves and shadows; the motion of the moon and the tides; life which quickens under the hard frozen ground; sap which runs beneath the surface of the bark; camouflaging animals, fish, and plants; formations of crystals and gems — there are incomprehensible mysterious phenomenon present in the natural world. Caladan Gallery investigates the ever-present and changing enigmatic nature of nature in visual terms. The work chosen for this exhibition is eclectic, yet there is a common current that can only be described as a satisfaction of beauty and depth of image. One finds both the expected in terms of this beauty, but also, there are images which, by virtue of the context they are placed in, become beautiful due to the impact of the mysterious. Combined they illustrate the transformation of that which is hidden in nature brought into recognition.
MARJORIE KAYE, Director of Caladan Gallery and Gallery Member, presents a solo exhibition featuring new works, continuing her exploration into images based on the Mandala form. In her recent images, there has been a breaking up of space in a kaleidoscopic fashion, which lends depth and an unexpected nature to the forms. However, this series of drawings finds a handful of small single paneled works, which manifested as quick studies of moments in time, to balance the usual long process of the drawings' creation. They read as a continuity which is centralized by the presence of two-paneled, broken up images. The common thread in all of the pieces is the centralization, which spews energy forth, as these images come into being.
These exhibitions will be online at www.caladangallery.com from August 10 – September 9, 2008. For more information, please call (617) 838- 8929.
