What are Universal Forms? They are the modes of organizing space and matter that natural forces have employed for millennia. They are the essence of spatial economy, yet they enable expansion, growth, and survival. They are in many ways life itself. The show 'Intersections' consists of three artists' unique visions of Universal Form, and how those visions intersect despite their use of diverse mediums - paint, clay, and metal. Through their work, these artists strive to invite contemplation into the systems of nature as portrayed by pattern and shape: forms from beneath and above our everyday realms; workings seen and unseen; the incomprehensibly far and the inconceivable near. Universal Form is the thing that unites these three artists, and the embrace of this idea in art serves to remind that all things in existence are deeply connected.
