Mark Brennan: Stars Ocean Mother Womb – Opening Reception

Thursday, October 17, 2019 @ 6PM

Mark Brennan is a member of the Openings Collective and describes his exhibition this way: “As I’m dedicating the show to my uncle who was a Servite Father and wrote about Mary, my premise is that images of her changed in the 14th century: until that time, she had traditionally been portrayed wearing gold with green and red, the colors associated with earthly royalty in Europe at the time. Beginning in the late 1300s, she begins wearing blue, a more celestial color, and that in our post-Darwinian world, images of the blue sea (the source of life on earth) and the blue stars (the source of earth itself) can provide an entry point for those wishing to meditate on Mary as a mother figure.”
