I am dreaming of the trees that devote themselves to an unending search for aerial balance...Such is the life of a fig tree, like a poet’s: the search for light and the difficulty of remaining in it. There are apple trees that prefer the beauty of their fruit to the maintenance of their balance and so they break. They are mad. 
—Francis Jammes, Pensées des Jardins (Paris, 1906)
Madness in Vegetables cites the playful title of a poem by Francis Jammes, a French writer born in 1868 who is best known for his turn from the fashionable 19th c. Symbolist movement, instead drawing inspiration from the natural world and a rustic life far from the decadent center of Parisian literary circles.

Artists in the exhibition address the enticing beauty and repellent brutality of nature; the political and civic implications of choosing a rural life; our rapidly changing climate; the wild character of plants, gardens, forests, and fauna; the relevance, power and forms of anthropomorphic mythmaking; and poetic and fantastical interpretations of the woodlands.

I'm happy to be part of this fantastic exhibit 'FreeHand' curated by Angela Conant at Sardine Gallery in Brooklyn, NY

SARDINE is pleased to present a group show titled FreeHand, curated by Angela Conant, which features a diverse range of artwork by Juan Pablo Baene, Angela Conant, Beka Goedde, Bradford Kessler, Elisa Lendvay, Rachel Ostrow, and Kiki Smith. The show opens with a reception on Saturday, April 27, from 6 to 9 pm and will be up through Sunday, June 9, 2019.

From curator Angela Conant:

'FreeHand' presents work that is made without plan or premeditation, other than a kind of bodily memory. Each work by the seven artists in this exhibition came to being not from a template, but as readily as a spoken word borne directly from a thought. Unlike verbal language, each move or mark was made ad hoc, in response to the last, as the artist’s inner thinking was assembled into visual form.

While improvisational methodology has been well traversed in drawing, notably by the surrealists, 'FreeHand' shows how intuition can lead in other media, such as stone, painting, and printmaking. The artists in this group see-saw from representation to abstraction, from two-dimensions to three, making real-time decisions using X-Actos, Dremmels and squeegees.

This exhibition celebrates the unique individual viewpoint as a hopeful guide forward. While consensus functions to merge and smooth diversity, these artworks delineate distinct facets of perspective. The works on view each present a progression of ideas like points to be connected, rather than didactic connective material between points. They present unassuming options and questions, and do not insist on their own correctness. Reveling in the honesty of instinct, they seek not the dull comfort of homogeneity. In a global consciousness wherein generalization has reached a dangerous zenith, 'FreeHand' elevates the invaluable, minute intricacies of individual thought.
