Open features two new artworks, and a selection of curated work that celebrates amidst loss, our process of learning to live with and through the pandemic. We have all experienced loss; of life, freedom and certainty, but we can celebrate yet because the pandemic has brought the unexpected gift — if we choose to cultivate it — of openness to accepting life as it is, and discovering new ways forward.
Bass says “My compositions are a dance between my intent and what nature wants to do. As I get older, I try not to expect predictability because life is not like that! Life unfurls and life ends; I see this happen on the branch of a single tree, nature shows us how to feel inspired about life’s complexities and possibilities and how to become more open and to wonder at the unexpected.”
