This event has ended.

Organized by Mason Saltarrelli

Mast Books present Pattern of Hand, a three artist exhibition of work by Susumu Kamijo (b. 1975, Nagano, Japan), Elizabeth Neel (b. 1975, Stowe, Vermont) and Ginny Sims (b. 1977, Little Rock, Arkansas).

Artists create a unique pattern through the combination of their thoughts, energy and mediums. Patterns grow by the weaving of their creations. Stories of their way of seeing broadcast through individual methods of invention. Each page of the process is physically authored thought to hand - pigment to canvas, fingers in clay and pastel to paper. The field of their pattern entwines piece by piece reflecting their inner story outwards to you.

Elizabeth Neel is an astronomer. Her paintings are reports, depictions of home, universal abstractions. They are books launched open to expose the entirety of a story all at once, on a single page, completely surpassing the limitations of words. Each work of Neel’s is a map for our inner being, reminding us where we came from and to where we will safely return.

Susumu Kamijo is a medicine man. His offerings of canine visions seamlessly fluctuate from monstrous to human telling the story of being in this life. Kamijo’s figures and landscapes unify on each surface, sharing with us the secret that we are nature and nature is us.

Ginny Sims is a mother. Her hands birth and meticulously prepare figures for their journey into the world to grow the story of art history. Sims’ creations are a new generation which through clay, pigment and a unique vision gift the past into the present and future.
