Mirage

Sabine Street Studios
1907 Sabine Street

A kind of mirage of experience motivates these abstract works. The artists begin to describe themselves as 'a hunter and gatherer', 'antennas ... absorbing ever-shifting experiences', 'peripheral vision', and a day 'as something amorphous, vague, with no skeleton or schema. These are the results of decades of study and experience to contend with an impatient world through process. In our everyday sea or desert of traffic or quarantine and news, these are the abstractions that many might at first feel are unattainable. 

Definition of mirage (Merriam-Webster)

1: an optical effect that is sometimes seen at sea, in the desert, or over a hot pavement, that may have the appearance of a pool of water or a mirror in which distant objects are seen inverted, and that is caused by the bending or reflection of rays of light by a layer of heated air of varying density

2: something illusory and unattainable like a mirage. A peaceful solution proved to be a mirage.
