Events subject to change
Reni Gower -- Tiles and Tessellations
September 6 - October 5, 2018, in the Gorevin Gallery, Holy Spirit Library
- Opening Reception:
September 6, 4:30-6:30pm
Curator Talk at 5pm
Tiles and Tessellations consists of large singular "Papercuts" and grid installations. Inspired by sacred geometry, this artwork recognizes geometric perfection as the matrix of humanity. Since ancient times, perfect forms (circle, square, and triangle) have been thought to convey sacred and universal truths by reflecting the fractal interconnections of the natural world. One finds these similarities embedded in decorative patterns around the globe. Incorporating these patterns into contemporary artwork promotes understanding through a shared perspective that can reinforce cross-cultural bonds.
Given our troubled times, Tiles and Tessellations speaks to a shared artistic legacy between the West and the Middle East with hope and optimism. Gower’s art celebrates slow work made by hand, while it counters visual skimming and encourages quiet reflection. As such, Tiles and Tessellations is a perfect conduit for conversations that embrace cultural awareness through mindfulness and mutual respect.
