Terry Maker: Distance and Desire
on view: March 7–April 26, 2024
opening reception: Thursday, March 7, 5-7 pm
Ray Drew Gallery is delighted to present Terry Maker: Distance and Desire, a solo exhibition.
“I explore the process of art making while addressing themes relating to human desire and decay, death and resurrection, the mundane and sacred, and mark-making–both literal and figurative. In all my work, I intend to pull viewers into these universal tensions, to stimulate novel, transcendent responses to the existential questions behind humanity’s search for meaning. The revealed surfaces present the viewer with a visual puzzle, made even stranger by its unique visual vocabulary, that opens the possibility of new connections, new perspectives. One circle, one cut, one compressed or expanded square inch at a time, I invite viewers to engage and explore our mysterious universe, expanding ever since it was just a little dot of a thing.”- Terry Maker
