DESCRIPTION

You want the real thing? Views of the Sacred is a show that asks you to penetrate the superficial and experience the profound. Harry Pollitt’s work provides the g-force, Katey Cooper’s vision expands from the minutest cell to the cosmos, Paul Chandler’s landscapes speak to the untamable within us all, and Lindsay Ahl’s philosophy and elephants offer a way into the mystic. Views of the Sacred is a show that explores ancient patterns, places and icons, and demonstrates that the more we understand, the deeper the mystery reverberates.

Asking fundamental questions without glitter, these artists share an appreciation of majesty. From the expansiveness of a landscape to the minuteness of an individual cell, from the sinuous curves of wood carved and polished to the rough hewn elephant in a world evoked through iconography and imagination, this show is derived from the natural world and provides viewers the opportunity to meditate on their lives with fresh vision and a new lens. These works are, in many ways, about our experience through space and the passage of time. Every moment opens onto the timeless. These works invite the viewer to slip through.

Ahl, Chandler, Cooper and Pollitt offer a view of the sacred: the worlds of worlds inside each cell; the way the time is always now. Hors d’oeuvre’s will be served, naturally. Dancing and intelligent conversation will be expected.
