Lia Chavez "Carceri" Exhibition Opening at Two Rams Gallery, New York
“Carceri”, which literally means isolated places, were inspired by Saint Francis of Assisi’s journeys into caves to meditate where he wore blinders, claiming the spiritual light he experienced in meditation was so great that any additonal (physical) light would be lethal. These works were generated through several hours in a meditative state while continually blindfolded without sound. Lia Chavez work investigates the mysteries of light, form and interor space. Carceri will be on view until April 5th at Two Rams Gallery, 215 Bowery, New York.
