a little ways away from everywhere
Opening Reception: Friday, November 1, 2013, 6-8pm
Exhibition runs through December 21, 2013.
Filled with emotional reverie and reverence, a little ways away from everywhere is an exploration of love and mourning. In Raychael Stine’s first solo exhibition at Art Palace, multiple ways of image-making live together to record the shift that happens from life into death through pictorial, formal, and material painterly explorations. The work slips between traditional representation and lively, abstract physical gesture. While initially appearing as disparate, the exhibition is a complex observation of whole things living together, mimicking, nesting and reflecting in all of their nuanced differences.
Vulnerable, sympathetic, and fearless, a little ways away from everywhere begs the question, How do you picture boundless love?
