"Forest Road Series: Dead Red Sky'' (oil and cold wax on wood panel), by George Shaw, in his show "Home Again,'' at Galatea Fine Art, Boston, June 1-26.
''We live from moment to moment but rarely in the moment. Time appears to be a
seamless flow from then to now to when. But to perceive time we are forced to break
it up into ticks of a clock, endlessly making each tick shorter as we perfect our
"We thus create a paradox or perhaps a conundrum that makes existence perceptible.
Although we think that time marches on as we perceive it, it flows backwards. We
live for tomorrow but we can never reach it. When we do it all too quickly becomes
but a memory - a dream that never ends. But what of that moment between moments?
The works in this exhibition are a continuation of my interest and fascination with
what that place may be and what tales it may tell.''
