Terry Hauptman (Artist/Writer): Hauptman reads her Poetry and talks about her Scrolls on exhibit

26 October, 2017 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Hauptman will read a few poems and then focus on The Songline Scrolls . . . how music, poetry and the way light moves through the body, spiral through each other to create a unified whole. She will answer questions and talk about singular vision, collaboration, and process.
Terry Hauptman’s Songline Scrolls: The Singing of the Soul is the Nature of Art, Herself, radiating with imagination and formal power  braiding cultures with innovative energy, imaginative cultural diversity and singular vision. The Songline Scrolls illuminate how light travels through the body resonating as dynamic black bands outline internal ambers in figurative forms. These spiral paintings ask the deep questions. What is woman? What is man? Hauptman responds by seeking harmonies’ dark chambers and dissonances, bridging cultures and braiding traditions. Envisioning her work is to feel the rhythmic contours of ecstatic dance, hear the figurative chorus of the world’s songs and to bask in the turquoise, purple and gold emanations of color from a deep resonant black ground. Hauptman’s love of intertwined spirals and knots, the rhythmic interlinking of curves amidst the play of contraries set the scrolls in motion. These painted Scrolls of Fire break traditional boundaries having figures dance through the dimensions of the paper, their visual music representing one continuous glyph.
