Artist thoughts concerning this shows title and display.
I have thought to call the exhibit “Formation Equations”. There is a painting somewhere in the collection by that name but I am not sure where… I am always amazed at the way stones and crystals are uniformly manifested from the wisdom within the earth. Equally mystifying to me is the way that human creativity manifests from the inner darkness, and I am always striving to surrender to that inner wisdom. Lois Van Liew
