Exhibiting with the Florentine artist, Filippo Rossi, Susan Kanaga explores the heart’s love, longing, and reaching for the presence of God. During our lifetime, we see only fragments of beauty and mercy; known only in part, we see only flickers of movement between man and his creator, only snatches of communication.
In this exhibit the viewer first encounters the central work, a collaborative piece which places the works of the two artists in interactive tension. From its inception, the exhibit Fragments has been about seeing in part. While neither artist knew what the result of their collaboration would be, the result is evidence that the faith they hold in common is strengthened by their combination
Together they create no division only communion. The works themselves are a model to understand and enter into the sacred dance of life; notes to help us arrive from fragments to harmony with God. For each person this is no easy journey. But, God gives us an example in his Son and witnesses along the way; beauty and communion with Him through color, song and sacred dance.
