For “Shadow + Sunlight” the EAST/WEST Project presents a Berlin/West Coast Spectacular of work by a new generation of artists raised in a world colored by counter-cultural ideals of the 60’s and esoteric, transcendental visuals from the American Symbolist and Visionary artistic movements of the early 20th century. Encompassing painting, photography, sculpture and drawing, it is an exhibition of moments where micro-emotional experiences open the door to a new and infinite sense of self in the world; a walk through the city becomes a cartographic mandala charting intimate epiphanies, hypercolor crystals trap the suggestion of a sacred geometry, tiny hillsides sprout on the backs of gnarled mushrooms and young men and women commune with one another in a woodland utopia.
