Hidden and Exposed
April 10 - May 9, 2011
CALADAN GALLERY presents a juried exhibition entitled “HIDDEN AND EXPOSED”. Snow melts and underneath the surface is the face of flowers, plants and earth, making their way towards the inevitable and the ephemeral. A thought is kept contained for reasons only known to the thinker. A pulley in time executes the thought’s rapid delivery, thus creating a chain reaction of cause and effect. The truth is found under festering lies. The existence of more realms of outer space and the universe are revealed. It is, perhaps, the perfect time of year to present this exhibition. That which was previously hidden is coming to the surface, in the form of life and warmth. Spring is a sign of renewal. When this is transferred to the realms of emotion, memory, and identity, does the emergence of hidden complexity signify a return to innocence, a renewal of mind and soul? Is there a parallel between the innocence of the blossoming in nature’s terms and the life of the soul? The work chosen for this exhibition draws the line along and across the spectrum of emergence. We are pleased to present the many faceted aspects of “Hidden and Exposed”.
