Five Elements

Art Enables is pleased to present the work of three area artists, Meghan Walsh, Adam Bradley, Terence Nicholson in the new exhibition “Five Elements.”

“Five Elements (Wu Xing in Chinese 五行 ) is a fivefold conceptual scheme that many traditional Chinese fields use to explain a wide range of phenomena. It is the appearance of different forms of energy, or chi, at different times and as a response to each other. Rather than a literal, sequential translation of element following element, this exhibition focuses on the call and response of each artist to the energy and movements of the others. We are unconscious of the echoes and shadows of ourselves as they impact others. We respond to things in others that the other may not even perceive in themselves.” -Meghan Walsh, Adam Bradley, Terence Nicholson
