April Special at the Corita Art Center

April brings the hope of spring, or perhaps more accurately, the hoped for spring on the heels of last month's relentless bluster. This in-between month, the gradual slowing of easier, breezier days stretching toward summer, presents a moment for stepping back, catching one's breath and reassessing the landscape.

In 1976, Corita created a series of "shell writing" serigraphs, prints made from photographs of tiny seashells that she enlarged past the point of recognition. Her choice of fantabulous color and cunning layout serve to further alienate the resulting print from the original object – another way of stepping back and reassessing the landscape.

our original nature – shell writing #7 marries a glorious pink planet with the words "our original nature is that of the enlightened Buddha and we have just forgotten it" hovering above.
