You Have Brought Daylight On Me
March 4-25, 2016
A solo exhibit by Steven Villano.
Transformation is fundamental.
To the Peoples that rose up from this land – long before Ketchikan or Southeast became a point on the globe much less a “destination” – the rainforest, the tides, the mountains, fog, and rain spoke to them of transformation. They listened and spoke back. This conversation was recorded and continues to live in their songs and their arts. Steven Villano “rose up” from different land but Ketchikan spoke to him and brought him here. Brought him Home. The world Steven had known and the works he had done were left behind to open a new conversation. A conversation with this land and with its spirit(s). It is this conversation that Steven will document in his exhibition at the Main Street Gallery. A transformation of Steven as a creative through one year – the first year – of listening to the land… “the rock” that rose for us to sit on, the deep and hollow mat of forest floor, the trees, the moss, lichen, and water…and what they have to say. The tides and cycles transforming him and letting a new work be created from its voice… if he can hear it.
