There is a heaviness that comes to mind in the cracked, black layers of the Victorian era. Layers of etiquette, of beaded, embroidered sleeves, a heaviness of mind in a rapidly changing world. Polite society with a strange fascination. I think of double meanings, a twist in perception. Whose wounds should you beware of? Those who wait in the netherworld or the other way round.
More Beyond opens next Saturday at Brick & Mortar Gallery in Easton, PA. See the show card below for all the details and the list of fellow artists (all excellent).
