We seek patterns in nature, leaf structure, animal migrations, dark and light, seasons and years. When we can’t find rhythm, we invent patterns; our calendar – months, hours, minutes, seconds, and we count them. We create deities and chant, intone, and recite to bring the cacophony of life’s chaotic weaving into synchronicity.
Kaori Ukaji generates intimate rhythmic processes -- mark-making metaphors of paths through existence. Her highly personal rituals order an avalanche of analog information, each composition a unique terrifying iteration of aesthetic synergy in which chaos is the journey, pattern is the path home.
Solo exhibition running from August 4-26, 2017.
Opening reception on the 4th.
