Curated by Aaron Williams and Stuart Krimko

An inward gaze has always been a part of the practice of making art and this gaze is by turns self- revealing and questioning. Inevitably, it yields more questions than answers and it is this reflective, existential soup that the artist claims as his or her home, ultimately embracing the questions. Similar to a devotional practice, the maker of art objects affirms his commitment to this nebulous region of the unknown and attempts to harness it in order to make it visible. Words like “sublime” and “magic” are used in reference to this experience, though perhaps alternate words such as “ecstasy” or “divinity” could be used here as well. The artist’s wish to make visible and the adherent’s desire to understand both encompass the need to make that which is ineffable a part of their being.
