Main Gallery

THE EXOTIC SUBLIME treading softly will present a contemporary bestiary focused on the many creatures that walk above or live below the earth in the Sonoran Desert. In plain sight or elusive, real and imagined creatures are ever-present, existing, threatened, mysterious, endangered, mystical, and magical. Or extinct. Mammalian, reptilian, amphibian, aquatic, and arthropodous worlds walk, hop, slither, swim, crawl, creep, and bound around us; resilient lifecycles adaptably ever-changing. Or not. We witness – in macrocosm or microcosm – the effects of time in slow dissolution or methodical accretion; cautionary and symbiotic tales combine what this place used to be with what this place will become. The voice in between, the creative and artistic resolve, is a visionary current toward the odd and wondrous grandeur of The Exotic Sublime.
