AIR is the second exhibition in the series, The ELEMENTS. The series will investigate how artists utilize the elements of earth, fire, water, and air as medium, process, and subject. And how, as a subject, these elements reflect some of the social, economic, political, and environmental issues Arizona currently faces.
AIR is next. The exhibition EARTH came first, it featured the work of 41 Arizona artists. FIRE and WATER will follow. The sequence of the two remaining projects will be determined by the number and quality of the entries received.
The crux of each installment is to contemplate human presence and responsibility (or lack of); move toward, hover, and dig at the intersection of art and science, all the while remaining focused on medium, process, and subject; never losing sight of the beauty, wonder, and essence before you.
