"When you make a mistake, it's not the end. It is the beginning of the art making process."

An artist's life is fraught with the challenge of finding enough time. If we are lucky, our day jobs support our creative lives. But it is all too easy for our own studio practice to take a back seat, to occupy only a small portion of the day. You would think that it might mean that we would be driven to somehow explore less yet produce more things – that the constraints of time would force us into a kind of economy – a cautious or predictable use of our creative impulse. But that would also imply that we sacrifice something along the way – the very thing that keeps us sharp and open for revelation. Finding our way comes from taking the time to make mistakes, fail in our experiments, to learn to start anew. The patience to listen, to observe, to learn the language of our disciplines, paves a path toward discovery.

The gallery is pleased to introduce the work of Shingo Furukawa and Gerald Weckesser.
