In Search of Meaning: Memory Becomes Us- Solo Exhibition, Esther Klein Gallery, 2019
An exhibition illuminating the role memory plays in relation to who we are. Patricia Moss-Vreeland’s paintings, prints, artist books, poetry and videos are metaphoric responses and reside in concert with the interlacing of science texts, connecting the personal to the universal. In a series of conversations Moss-Vreeland has with Dr. Dasa Zeithamova, University of Oregon, they explore the function of the human brain to find meaning, the parallel universes of art and science, their different ways of knowing and self-expression, and the importance of stepping out of our silos and forming relationships. Moss-Vreeland integrates her ongoing inquiry about the social impact of memory in new works, adding another layer of meaning, along with a new sensory component designed with the Monell Chemical Senses Center.
