Passageways depicts the layered experience of embodiment, decorating figures with their surroundings to hint at their abilities and strangeness. The body is emphasized as an energetic mediator; a passageway between tangible and non-tangible spaces, one that can manifests ideas, movements, thoughts, memories and other vibrations. The artwork aims to re-interpret the body within an imaginative framework and open it up to symbols that are expansive; building towards an imaginative-poetic-visual language to visualize buried and potential new ideas.

Opening Reception | October 18th, 2018 from 7-10pm
Exhibition Dates | October 19th – November 3rd
Gallery Hours | Wednesday to Friday from 12-7pm, Saturdays from 12-5pm
