Thanks to everyone who could come out to the opening reception of Murmuration this weekend. I love this time of year when the sun stays out until nearly 8 pm and this weekend we had some of the nicest weather. I had a great time greeting friends and meeting lovely, new people.
A part of this exhibition is a modular grid of small paintings that can be moved around to change the choreography of the flock. Next to this hang two pairs of white gloves and this label:
The Bird By Bird Series can be grouped in sequential order, or re-arranged to suit. Please feel free to change the order. Move any of these paintings within the group, altering the overall configuration as you envision it. Each shift changes the choreography of the flock, the shape of the clouds, and the story of the murmuration.
I was pleased to see people step up and don the gloves and set about re-designing within the grid's
I hope to get photographs of all of the various configurations people come up
with as the exhibition progresses.
