Last night was epic! The crowd was a fantastically eclectic mix of downtown New York, Art Collectors and people of Harlem.
Description of Show:
Haseltine, explains that the gallery will be transformed into a space where the viewer’s relationship to scale and time is altered, thus affording a space in which nature, evolution, and the biosphere can be contemplated. It will be a space, says Haseltine, a longtime student of the Shinto religion, revealing the moment of awareness and enlightenment described in Shinto as “chinkon,” the point at which the spirit of a rock or tree reveals itself in nature.
According to Haseltine, “Futurenatural-Supermatural addresses the need for all of us to reacquaint ourselves with the primordial life force within nature. When harmonious, all organic matter and living matter of the biosphere works in tandem to create a balance and equilibrium. This show addresses the life force in nature and both imagines and embraces the ability of our beautiful watery biosphere to regenerate and create new and yet unknown combinations of future life forms.”
