Marrow Gallery presents Two Moons in Sagittarius, featuring the work of Tahiti Pehrson, Mercy Hawkins and Lindsay Stripling. As 2021 comes to a close, we look back on the year and invite the universe to guide us into a brighter future. The New Moon that opens December is a truth seeker. The three artists in this exhibition offer perspectives which seek to reveal the hidden and explore the unknown: Tahiti Pehrson’s representation of the mysterious workings of the wider universe, are represented in finely crafted hand cut paper mathematical forms; Mercy Hawkins, whose sympatico understanding of natural and man made environments reaches beyond symbolic language to create a deeper understand of the natural world; and finally, the folk art wisdom of Lindsay Stripling, presenting contemporary fables, imagery and human truths.

The Centaur is the symbol of Sagittarius in the zodiac, a sociological sign, it is emblematic of the three artists that consider both the cerebral and the physical in their work.  The artist’s works together play off of each other, examining the relativity of community structures and the development of societal truths. Together these works take a calculated understanding of the transcending nature of art as exploration, revelation and elucidation of society, reflective of the winter solstice, and a search for light amongst the darkness.
