Featuring me with my piece “Sing My White Night,” which the lovely @roxannawalitzki modeled for. She’s posing with a piece by Sail Uselessarm which she also inspired in the last image.

Curated by Kirsten Anderson & Sharon Arnold, the show runs until the end of January.
Incantation is an exhibition inspired by themes around death, rebirth, winter, and ritual. For centuries, artists have been captured by the seductive mystery of mysticism and the occult. The subject lends itself wholly to the dead of winter – a deeply symbolic time of renewal, introspection, and the first stirrings of life hinting at a far-off spring. As our Northern days still acquiesce to long winter nights, there is yet time for a multitude of rites, incantations, divination, and portends. Throughout these stories the depths of our desire, both beautiful and terrible, manifest.
