“A Borrowing of Bones" was inspired by the Pablo Neruda's poem "October Fullness" [In the end, everyone is aware of this: nobody keeps any of what he has, and life is only a borrowing of bones.] The Artistic tradition of moments more, and the theory of terror management. Using diverse artistic practices, it will examine the beauty in our own mortality and the different cultural expressions of this terminal elegance that defines human existence.
Stephanie Sherwood and Andrew Currey both work two dimensionally, employ a limited color palette, and work within a history and tradition of two dimensional rendering. Crust compares and contrasts their work while examining the vulnerability and ubiquity with in it. Where their work diverges is in their rendering: Stephanie’s paintings are fast, loose and gestural. Andrew’s paintings are meticulous, controlled, and precise.
