I had five pieces in this show, co-curated by D. Dominick Lombardi and Robert Curcio, celebrating wide-ranging interpretations of the head, human and beyond. The exhibition at the BOSI Gallery on Orchard Street on the Lower East Side, ran from July 10 to August 11, 2013.
The exhibition, “Birth of Consciousness”, ran from April 25 throughMay 25, 2013, and consisted of work from the “ID-Portraits from the Unconscious” series, “River of Oblivion” , and “Isolation” a work, 20 feet x 8 feet, from my “Black Rain, Black Water” series. My video work “Arbor Vitae”, was also projected in the gallery, including five performances in collaboration with singers, dancers and a poet.
