CONVERSATION | Unspoken Language
The unusual pairing of work by Kensuke Yamada and Leigh Suggs in this exhibition creates an opportunity for a deeper understanding of each artist’s work— a view made possible by this context. We, the viewers, are part of the wholly visual conversation. We react and respond instantly to the intense color, the reflected light, the fluid movement, and the human gestures. Without a single word or sound, visual art is capable of eliciting our participation in the exchange of ideas.
