The ecliptic is the circular path of the sun on the celestial sphere. And, for their Vernal show, Flatrocks Gallery presents works that celebrate the cyclical nature of the universe. Halos, moons, wedding rings, wheels, clocks… everywhere we turn, we meet images of circularity in our lives. At once the simplest of shapes, it is also the inspiration for philosophers, astronomers, mathematicians and artists. Circularity inspires images that unite and reassure us, that keep us in motion. Each of the artists in “Ecliptic” finds ways to encompass and energize the viewer. Dawn Southworth’s dramatic mixed media boxes are shrine-like constructions that pull one into the process of destruction and recreation. Mary Rhinelander’s paintings pop with color, in and out, in endless exhilarating cycles. Kyle Browne’s graphite drawings remind us of our part in the cycle of nature. Nina Fletcher’s wire works show motion and constant change in three dimensions. Joy Halsted and Gints Grinberg’s sculptural spheres remind us we are part of a larger universe, and Juni Van Dyke’s paintings offer the warmth and imagination of the joyous circle of life. Ecliptic runs through June15th.
