Boston-based artists Steve Sangapore and On Kyeong Seong's exhibition displays the cohesive theme of universal connectedness through the lens of science, objectivity and shared truth.

 
This duel exhibition emits a deep and inherent sense of humility and curiosity toward nature. The duality between consciousness and matter is a prevalent theme expressed through scientific and biological archetypes, as well as images of the natural world. Together, the artists’ works collaborate towards making a connection between the tangible impermanence of matter with transcendental, spiritual unity through shape, depth, texture and arrangement. As a result, the works rouse the audience to unearth and illuminate mankind’s indelible state of unknowing and curiosity for what we experience as life and reality.
 
Coming from vastly different backgrounds, the two artists bring forth unique points of view in analyzing the natural world. Biology, philosophy, cosmology and sociology are all tapped realms which both artists illustrate using various mediums and refined techniques.
