"As Within, So Without"

ArtPrize 9 + Autumn at Parliament

Join and us Journey, Within and Without.

"As Within, So Without," is an exploration of the connectedness between the outer world of materiality, the liminal space of perception, and the inner world of the individual, as each of these spaces interact with one another in the physical and spiritual planes. Referring to the Socrates quote and the many iterations of this phrase throughout the various paths of the wisdom traditions, the artists in this show utilize their materials as a mirror in the outer world of their own interiors, manifesting works that reflect their perceptions and processing of life via installation, fiber, and wearable goods.


"As Within, So Without" will consist of the following works:

"The Air All Around"
Artists: Elyse Marie Welcher + Megan Roach
Vote #: 66565

The oneness of the matter that makes up our existence, our physical forms, our artistic materials, our bodies, our art, and our thoughts; it is the medium of air between us and other forms or ideas that creates the conduit for perception to begin at all.

Fiber, process, practice.
 

"Fragments of Old Bones: New Soul,"
Artist: Gloria Kirk-Hanna
Vote #: 65811

Old Bones : New Soul

Old Bones that are tired.
aching with life's pressures
bulge from the bending....
then just before breaking
 a healed soul emerges.  
Love far outweighs the grief.  Sweetness along with new rhythms are chosen. The New Soul is lighter, wiser....complete.
