The theme of this show, which coincides with the May 17th opening of LOVE/SICK at TheaterWorks, revolves around the dichotomy of the blossom and decay of love. Saplings born in April rise from the matter of their ancestors, grow, die, and become that matter. Likewise, love is born, lives and dies; and its ashes are the soil in which new love grows.
Visual art for the show will explore love and its cycle of birth, blossom, decay, and rebirth, as well as the juxtaposition of those, literally and metaphorically.

This is the first anniversary of the quarterly Welcome to Bohemia series. Come celebrate!

“Overflow” is a four-way conversation, on paper, about too much. Is it possible to measure abundance and generosity, to represent big thinking and a sincere committment to transformation? Can one really go somewhere, far away or way too close, with a piece of paper? What is the appeal of “infinite space”? Is it a fantasy about freedom, the wide-open joy of boundless movement and unrestricted time, or, does the attraction live in the contradiction between space and attachment? Can it be that the most vivid definition of Abstraction is grounded in the ordinary, visceral experience of an object? “Overflow” expands and refracts a visual discussion about the violence, humor and perseverence that accompany resistance, the inevitability of boundaries and a handmade, idiosyncratic attack on meaninglessness.
