Jerry and Rebecca use poetry as a means of accessing imagery and creativity in their work. We will share the poems that influence them alongside the work in the exhibit:

The work in this show comes from my exploration of AMOR OSCURO (Dark Love), the last collection of works written by Spanish poet Federico García Lorca before he was assassinated in 1936. – Jerry McLaughlin

I have chosen to respond to the work of the Irish poet and Nobel laureate Seamus Heaney, in particular to the contrasts and intersections he explores between two worlds–the earthy and concrete, and the mystical and non-material.

This duality of ideas evokes in me both memories of the richly textured Irish landscape of bogs and sea where I spend time every year, and contemplation of the liminal space that connects us to spirituality.I’ve worked with earthy color and complex visual texture as well as minimalist composition in my interpretation of Heaney’s ideas.  – Rebecca Crowell
