Three artists explore form, energy and movement from the smallest scale that humans have discovered to the sacred geometry of nature to the realms of the human body. Informed by science, observation and intuition, the invisible is brought to light in three distinct styles developed from deep exploration and fine craft. The word Quintessence, from the ancient Greek for the mysterious 'fifth element', is now used as a descriptive term in cosmology for equally mysterious 'dark energy'. It is a fitting theme for the desire of artists to make the invisible visible and show the underlying energy sources in and around us. This is the exhibition catalog for Quintessence, Three Visions at the Ram Dass Library of the Omega Institute in Rhinebeck, New York, April 20 - October 30, 2014. The three artists are: Alicia Hunsicker, who fuses her knowledge of physics and biology with the beauty found in nature's organic forms and patterns, inspired by her residency at the Large Hadron Collider; Pamela Turczyn, who by using sacred geometry as expressed in nature, light, color, rhythm, sound and intention, imbues her paintings with vibratory codes to inspire viewers. The creator of a pantheon of two hundred deities, Janet Morgan's current work shows the conduction of life forces in and around the body. As a team they explore form, energy and movement from the tiny to the vast. Introduction by the award winning science fiction author Kim Stanley Robinson, with essays by David Rubin, independent curator, the artist John Sims, Amina Eagle, curator at the Omega Institute, and mathematician and author Michael Schneider.
