Distillations, Crystallizations & Essential Forms by NEW MYSTICS
January 6 through 30, 2014
Artist Reception: January 9, 6-8 p.m.
“Conjuring crystalline forms we cut a lattice from clear air - framing the garbage gathered on frozen cement with unwavering light. A series of images carved from life, outside of art. With no memory and no motive, we move forward and always upward.”
Distillations presents new ‘works of progress’ - layers of material, sound, and physical forms seeming incidental, yet slowly aggregating, reducing, working towards pure forms. These are memories, discreet forms, objects, vessels, tools and sounds all slowly crushed into dust, diamonds, rust, nothing...
Featuring new works by: Michael Evans, John Heidecker (refuge), and Samuel Lothrop (dj draco), Aubrey Birdwell, Japhe Witte, Dan Hawkins, Bald Man Watching and NKO.
