EVIDENCE is “the available body of facts or information indicating whether a belief or proposition is true or valid.”
No surprise, this word is currently part of our political climate.
Just back from a month long sojourn in warmer climes, I laid out and examined the “Small Parts” that I created while away – examining the evidence of my own life.
These little works of art- the woven shells, embroidered leaves and netted horseshoe crab shells – are physical objects that are evidence of a period of contemplation and curiosity.
But these concrete things are really a gateway to the unseen, the invisible.
Here I am reminded of what the Little Prince says
“And now here is my secret, a very simple secret: It is only with the heart that one can see rightly; what is essential is invisible to the eye.”
It is easy to get caught up in the evidence, the concrete and physical. Perhaps the truth lies in the invisible, not necessarily in the evidence.»
WHO DO YOU LOVE? - “Join us as Biennial Artists share their art crushes—each artist presents three works of art by other artists that they love, and tells why. In this way, the audience is introduced to a wide range of art and gains insight into how artists look at art, how they take inspiration from the work of other artists, and how deep looking informs their own work. A question and answer period will follow the presentations.”Local paper review Collected Works of Sarah D.
