A Collide of Scope - James Terrell

 November 17– December 30, 2023

Artist James Terrell seeks to contemplate and document our humanity and spirituality in these singularly turbulent times by creating a kaleidoscope of illusions that tell a host of stories. His dynamic and colorfully saturated paintings project the movement of life and the vibration energy, moving between abstraction and realism. “A Collide of Scope” addresses the anxieties of modern life we all encounter despite race, color or creed
