Upcoming Group Exhibition at the Kalamazoo Institute of Arts

Today I delivered this painting to the Kalamazoo Institute of Arts for installation in the upcoming exhibit, “Double Take: Artists Respond to the Collection”. The show runs August 23, 2014 – January 4, 2015 (reception is Sept. 5th).

 

In the studio: "Whisper", 2014, Acrylic on Alupanel, 18 x 30 inches, by David Jay Spyker

It should be an interesting exhibition featuring the works of regional artists hung next to pieces from the permanent collection, which have inspired them in some way.

In the studio: the painting "Whisper" in progress.

    there’s a worm addicted to eating
    grape leaves.

    Suddenly, he wakes up,
    call it grace, whatever, something
    wakes him, and he’s no longer
    a worm.

    He’s the entire vineyard,
    and the orchard too, the fruit, the trunks,
    a growing wisdom and joy
    that doesn’t need
    to devour.”
