Using a wide variety of media, these five artists explore means of representing and experiencing the sacred across different faith traditions. Sanskrit mantras are the visibly elegant structure of Shrestha's signature paintings that combine Nepali calligraphic script with American graffiti style, while Saywitz begins her paintings with diaristic text and mantras that are slowly effaced as she builds their surfaces. Elemental materials of clay, stone, and wood are used by Kozdeba, a ceramicist, and Matsuda, a carver, to represent the powerful presence of sacred architecture and iconic Buddhist sculptures. In collaborative works using everyday materials, Burr invites engagement with everyday materials (or the stuff around us) as a dynamic form of mindfulness, meditation, or prayer.
