Listening To What You Can't See says
Sticks & Stones Seattle presents "Listening to What You Can't See", a solo exhibit of the Non-ordinary Reality painting series by artist Kate Vrijmoet.

In these paintings water represents the physical manifestation of the aural. Among other things these paintings engage your mirror neurons for sound to facilitate an auditory viewing experience. The goal is that you hear the paintings. Art stimulates you because a “functional link exists between my brain and yours.” When you look at the images of the underwater scenes your brain, your cognitive unconscious stimulates those parts of your brain that tell you what you know to be true about being underwater.

Water is a metaphor, both for keeping afloat and for a tide of change. The way that water alters gesture, conferring ambiguity and disguise but ultimately revealing all, suggests the necessity of opening our eyes under water, learning to see through moving water. Warren Buffet remarked that when the tide goes out, we find out who has been swimming naked. Amid fear and loss and disorientation, we are signaling wildly; this could be a time for making new connections and building new strengths.

Join us on Friday, May 8th at the opening reception - get a chance to meet the artist, enjoy a cold Hales Ales brew, and soak in the new collection. We look forward to seeing you there!
