Knowing Not Knowing
Knowing Not Knowing will be on view at http://wwwbostonsculptors.com The Boston Sculptors Gallery| from 5/25-6/26/2011.

What can we ever really know with certainty? The pieces of Knowing Not Knowing explore the tension of knowing something with conviction and yet never being able to know the full truth of it. Individually the work covers a range of themes: history, time, the printed page, literary tradition, love, and outer-space.

Although each piece exists in a distinct realm, they all share an aesthetic of belied simplicity. Shapes are limited to basic geometries of squares, circles, and triangles. The color palette is restrained to black and white with only the occasional burst of color in contrast. The materials are familiar—paper, cloth, and string—with minimal manipulation. However, the residue of an intense process puts the lie to the simplicity and gives the art a scintillating and restless quality.

Time and the artist’s hand are ever present in the work—hand-written text, repetition of form, torn paper, and dripping ink. There is a monastic devotion such that the act of creation can be felt with immediacy in the final form of the art.

Knowing Not Knowing will show concurrently with work by Jessica Straus.

Prospect Hill Monument, Union Square, Somerville, MA

For one weekend in August the installation Bloom will transform the grounds surrounding Union Square’s Prospect Hill Monument. The grassy hill will erupt with a swathe of white flowers. On closer inspection, viewers will discover that the flowers are made of paper with handwriting on each of the petals, alternating with “loves me” and “loves me not”. It is a field of hope and possibility. Viewers will be encourage to take the flowers with them, so that the field will gradually vanish. Just as the flowers will suddenly appear on Saturday morning, they will disappear on Sunday evening. Bloom is an ArtsUnion event presented by Hannah Verlin and the Somerville Arts Council.
