West End Art Space warmly invites you to the opening reception of 'Echo', the latest show by Pamela Rataj, Saturday, July 20, 2-4pm.
JULY 19 - AUGUST 4, 2019
‘And further, by contemplating these forms
In the relations which they bear to man,
He shall discern, how, through various means
Which silently they yield, are multiplied
The spiritual presences of absent things’.
- from The Excursion by William Wordsworth
For me, the porous surface of sandstone resonates both timelessness and transition. There is no direction to the ongoing process of change in form and texture, simply openness to the interplay of forces.
On worn leather or wood traces left by past use, echo the presence of a time or a person no longer here. These works explore the merging and coexistence of elements, and the mystery of connection through time.
