Ward-Nasse is pleased to announce"The Many Worlds of Bob Morgan", a one person show by painter Bob Morgan. His views on art follow:

"For me, painting is a means of projecting perceptions.

"Joseph Campbell has indicated a belief that artists will provide the most revealing insights into our contemporary "mythic" void and the emergence of new truths. As an anthropologist, I saw art history as a history of such perceptions.

"In 1993, I began painting. As I began to free eye and hand and to experiment with materials and styles, I became aware of many limitations in my own perceptions. With new - found respect for many artists and traditions, both realist and abstract, I aspired to create images within a style that would consistently project the ever-expanding power of human perceptions.

"Now I experiment. A major theme is Antimandelikons, attempts to present feelings that arise from the "mysteries" of life. For me, art can excite the imagination and inspire openings in the intuitive-holistic "right-side" of our brain. We can explore the deep feelings behind unconscious assumptions, frozen in dogma, to liberate and enrich mind, emotions - and our very life.

"In this exhibition, I have selected works that reflect various subjects and styles: realistic, abstract, and areas in-between. In a time fraught with peril, I am touched by the efforts of artists to present the "world afresh". I hope that my efforts will help reveal some insights into the plight of humans-in-a-global-setting one that needs to be graced with a sense of unity."

Biographical note and history:

Born in Massachusetts, I moved to New York to attend Columbia College in New York. With a degree in anthropology, I taught world cultures and history in the city's middle schools. I have been fortunate to have been in the drawing classes of Jackie Battenfield and Terry Cole; the portrait and "materials" classes of Dr. Furman Finck; and, especially, William Scharf and Michele LiCalsi.
