The Gallery at Three Rivers Presents ''Hopes for the Past, Memories of the Future''
Inspirations for "Hopes for the Past, Memories of the Future" include life and death as well as the dualism of the body and the soul. René Descartes believed that the soul is the source of all intelligence and emotion while the body is merely a repository for the supreme workings of the soul, just “a machine that bleeds.” The temporary nature of the mortal body and the ethereal nature of the soul is explored in the context of life and death. Mystery, as well as perceptions of time and memory, is also examined in this series of drawings.
