Caterina Verde: The Lucretian [112]

Caterina Verde, the artist who designed the ABAD Wall featuring all works in the original exhibition, opens her exhibition The Lucretian at White Wash Studio in Amagansett, New York, October 9, 2010.

The exhibition will include drawings, watercolors, texts, photos and video.

The Lucretian is the embodiment of the Epicurian poet's master poem - "De Rarem Natura" or, "On The Nature of Things".  The Lucretian holds in his gaze the thoughts he expounds in his poetry: that nothing comes from nothing; that the natural world is made up of atoms and void and no more or less.  He holds an abhorrence of superstitions and cruelty justified by religion, yet he is devotional in his adoration of Venus.

The Lucretian is the minuteae of movement that allows us to place our thoughts and projections on him and this is determined by the meaning based on our understanding.  For more information see the gallery here: http://whitewashstudio.net/
