Instruments for Navigating Inner Worlds
@ the UWF Gallery of Art
Inspired by myth, history, and her southern roots, Raine Bedsole’s artwork reveals older worlds, a world of ritual and transcendence. Instruments for Navigating Inner Worlds is a poetic mixture of painting, sculpture, and text. This exhibition delves with the surge of misplaced things and emotions left after post “K”… “Boats, left in trees with the ragged remains of possessions dangling from the branches tell the story of hurricane Katrina’s storm surge and aftermath here on the Gulf Coast. All too often this is becoming a familiar sight in coastal areas…”says Bedsole. Instruments for Navigating Inner Worlds is an emotive body of work that uses the flood as a universal archetype symbolizing both death and birth.
