Some scientists see a theoretical grounding for synchronicity in quantum physics and chaos theory. They are finding that the isolation and separation of objects from each other is more perception than a reality. On deeper levels, subatomic particles are connected by participating in a sensitive, flowing web of information. Physicists have shown, for example, that if two photons are separated, no matter by how far, a change in one creates a simultaneous change in the other.
The same can be said of two people in love. Through love, we realize our deep connections that transend the rational by embracing the mysterious when we enter the garden, which is a metaphor for erotic love. When we let go of trying to understand, analyze and control love, we can allow it to flow freely and are open to transformation: “Blow upon my garden so that its spicy fragrance spills out”, Song of Songs. In Chaos theory, there is a reckoning and resolution. Everything changes and is unique in its own way. And although we don’t understand the pattern, there is an inherent one in nature.
Indeed, the mere study of photons and love changes and stagnates them.
The exhibit is the dialgue between the Divine Masculine/Solomon, and the response of the Divine Feminine/Queen of Sheba. .The diptichs are cropped images from the two “anchor” paintings facing each other in the gallery. The cropped images were digitally manipulated, printed, mounted on board and reworked in wax. The smaller images told the personal love story from the Song of Songs and the larger “anchor” images told the story of the forces of nature,
The book that is a collaboration of love letters and the Biblical text from the Song of Songs giving the exhibit both a universal truth to an intimate conversation.
