“These marks as on an airplane wing blazing are words for us to read,
though some part of us can’t read; some part of us is unlettered and describes us by living”
Working in the blurred area between pseudo and authentic esoteric experience, GAG uses personal symbols alongside geometric and biomorphic forms to build a self-styled ritual space. > Hidden Place < is an amalgam of industrial and natural forms; manufactured shapes covered in day-glow mud support plastic crystals and bundles of wood. Rough clay and sparkling glass-like shapes doodle their way across the gallery wall, a nameless language describing the objects in the room. Playing with color, semantics, and form, the installation embodies the familiar and irrational realm of dreams, imagination, and belief.
