This exhibit features the work of the following three artists, who examine the cycle of life, death and the afterlife.
Poli Marichal's prints use the tree of life image as symbols of our need to be rooted and safe but, also, of our desire to transcend our limitations and branch out into the cosmos.
Adam Watts' assemblage sculptures connect with our mortality and innate spirituality as seen through the rich world of our senses.
Julie Yeo's paintings explore the concept of communication with the deceased through the lens of Korean Shamanism.
My friend and I ran into the curator, Carol Henke, at the gallery. She invited us to join her afternoon class because Julie Yeo was the guest speaker. Julie talked about her artist residency, Korean Shamanism and her dreams. What a treat!
