About the Exhibit

Spiritual Geographies

Exhibit Dates: November 1 - December 30, 2019
Reception: Thursday, December 12 • 6PM-8PM
Location: Sandy Bennett Art Gallery

Artist Leslie Adler presents “Spiritual Geographies” in the Sandy Bennett Gallery in bergenPAC during November and December. An artist reception will be held Thursday, December 12th from 6 to 9 p.m.

This body of work contains several representations of direction including spiritual and spatial directions.  These are directions of nature and the nature of the posthuman. The nature we perceive is what we accept, the nature of the posthuman is the non-material, the unknown. These symbols and marks help to organize the disparity that humans experience between the known and unknown. The process of creating repetitive shapes, tying string or rubbing the spiral of a tree trunk for a mono print is a meditative practice. In this action there is no effort, nothing and at the same time everything. This space, between thoughts, contains all possibilities. Here there is no separation between the material realm and the realm of the non-material. This is what makes each piece unique, one of a kind. 

A portion of the proceeds from sales of the paintings support bergenPAC’s nonprofit mission.
