From the curator: “Many religious mythologies believe that an error in judgement condemned the world to live a blighted existence: the pursuit of the knowledge of good vs. evil took us away from perfection and paradise, or so they say The visual artists in “On the Edge of Eden” bring perfection down to Earth by creating multifaceted worlds of depth and color with each piece of work presenting purity in form, texture, and structure as points of departure. When assessing notions of beauty in a post-Paradise world, I have found that among the patterns of life, beauty comes in many shapes to leave room for growth thus further extending our concept of perfection.”
