There are so many reasons why I wish I was in San Francisco longer this Spring! Including Michelle Blade's first solo show, 'Gathering Into Being' at CULT | Aimee Friberg Exhibitions in the Mission District, featuring new large and medium scale works on both canvas and paper.
Now let the water represent the world of sensible facts, and let the air above it represent the world of abstract ideas. Both worlds are real, of course, and interact; but they interact only at their boundary, and the locus of everything that lives, and happens to us, so far as full experience goes, is the water. We are like fishes swimming in the sea of sense, bounded above by the superior element, but unable to breathe it pure or penetrate it. We get our oxygen from it, however, we touch it incessantly, now in this part, now in that, and every time we touch it, we turn back into the water with our course re-determined and re-energized. -William James
So ethereal and other-worldly! I would absolutely love to see this in person.
Random additional info: the gallery is in the space of the now-closed Queen's Nails Gallery which was co-run by Bob Linder & Julio César Morales.
