Night Mind

 October 4 through November 5, 2017

My current solo exhibition at Boston Sculptors Gallery, Night Mind, contains three large-scale sculptures evocative of beds and the mind-body states that beds shelter: rest, sleep, dreams, intimacy, sex, regeneration, birth, illness, and death. When we lie down and become horizontal, our relationship to gravity, reason, imagination, reality—and each other—is radically different than when we are vertical. Beds provide sanctuaries for these vulnerable states–structures to hold the unstructured, containers for the uncontainable.

Port, with its hanging boats of skin and bones, suggests our journey through the life cycle. Night Mind, with its multiple layers of suspended fabrics, becomes a metaphor for the depths of our consciousness. Threshold, a sculptural relief with a cow hide hidden beneath the sheets, reveals and conceals.
