I have always been drawn to spiral shapes found in nature. In this exhibit, At the Core, I celebrate spirals and how they may appear in our lives. Symbolic spirals are one of the oldest geometric shapes found in all cultures throughout history. They are truly timeless and universal.
In terms of birth and growth, the spiral can be found everywhere in nature beginning from the core or center and expanding outwardly. Some spirals represent a path leading from our outer consciousness inward towards our souls. Movements between our inner and outer worlds are mapped by spiraling rings both individually and collectively.
“The human mind always makes progress, but it is a progress made in spirals." ~Madame de Stael
Gerald M. (Jerry) Tuckman collaborated on this exhibit providing each painting with a title and an accompanying poem. We met in 2014 when Jerry and his wife visited my studio at NUarts during First Fridays Artswalk. Our first collaboration was for Autumn Alchemy at the Whitney Center for the Arts.
