RANDOM AND RESPONSE - SHOW WITH C.A. MILLNER - HERITAGE GALLERY, WHITINSVILLE, MA

20th August 2017
A new exhibit with C.A. Millner at the Heritage Gallery in Whitinisville, MA.
The show runs from Sept 1 - Oct 13 and has 13 pairings of image to calligraphy. Also on view are additional displays documenting C.A.'s process and my use of found objects.

I was fortunate to have C.A. agree to collaborate on this show which pairs some of my small scale drawings, prints and photo collages from the past 20 years with C.A.'s highly creative visual word play. I gave C.A. about 50 small copies of images and she chose what she wanted to respond to.




The Heritage Gallery has purchased "Receive" for their permanent collection. This piece is paired with C.A. Millner's calligraphic interpretation of Lao Tzu's writing "Empty yourself of everything. Let the mind rest at peace."
I love this combination. Although I was thinking about receiving when I constructed this collage, it is also my belief that one must empty oneself with prayer and meditation in order to receive.
