WISDOM AND WONDER, my current exhibition at the St. Agnes Library is about what happens within us as we experience the intersection of words and images in a work of art.
For centuries, art has inspired literature and literature has inspired visual art. While the visual impact of a picture may be immediate, poems and quotes can communicate in a more subliminal way, unfolding through the senses as you digest them. Not until the end and sometimes much later do we feel their resonance and have their meaning dawn upon us. The combination of poetry and painting creates a new medium whose impact affects us in a multidimensional way. This artwork is an exploration of this new medium.
