Patrick Nagatani: Medium, Meditation, and Mu

Carol Chase Bjerke and Patrick Nagatani  are collaborating on their most recent show at the Common Wealth Gallery Medium, Meditation and Mu.

The exhibition with be open October 12th through the 28th, 2012.  There will be an opening reception Friday October 12, from 5 to 8 pm.

The exhibition will be featuring Carol Chase Bjerke's ENSO in conjunction with Patrick Nagatani's "Tape-estries".

"The Carol Chase Bjerke/Patrick Nagatani collaboration started more than six years ago. It is based on mutual creative support, and has been nurtured by common interests and experiences - including healing from similar cancers, a passion for process in their work and ideas, and finding resources in Eastern philosophical and aesthetic traditions. 

Nagatani’s large “tape-estries” are meticulously-layered depictions of Buddhist deities. The complexity of symbolic reference in the imagery is complimented by the simplicity of the materials used in construction, i.e. ordinary masking tape “painted” over photographic prints. This is the first major showing of this body of work. 

Bjerke’s ENSO installation applies the Japanese name for circles of enlightenment to photographs of the circles she routinely draws with medical supplies as part of her on-going healthcare. In this presentation, a grid of one hundred and twenty gelatin silver prints provides the focus for an intimate meditation space. "
