Try and be a sheet of paper with nothing on it.
Be a spot of ground where nothing is growing,
where something might be planted,
a seed possibly, from the Absolute. – Rumi
OPENSPACE is pleased to present Coming Home, a group show curated by Mustafa Farhad. The selected works bear witness to the hidden patterns that line the inner landscape of souls, revealing the common thread that weaves through the darkness of the unconscious, unfolding the light hidden there, unveiling the essential ‘face we had before we were born’. The exhibition demonstrates a receptivity of heart that opens the collective doorway to the moment, welcoming the unexpected, embracing the transient nature of existence. The diverse collection, which hails from a group of artists working in a variety of mediums, shares knowledge of the heart, the continuous unfolding of the inner journey, from separation to wholeness.
As Coming Home suggests, this is a shared journey to, from, and within open space, where boundaries of the individual dissolves and merges with creation, allowing energy to flow. Though the path of each artist is distinct and unique, in ‘the company of friends’, we work together to align ourselves with the essence, opening to what lies beyond.
The group show also highlights the nomadic nature of OPENSPACE gallery, a formless and traceless caravan of dreams, appearing from moment to moment, place to place, in this plane. OPENSPACE is beyond definition, both manifest and hidden, full of vibrant energy and light, unfolding from the consciousness of the Beloved.
The heart is the spring at the center of a clearing within the uncharted forest of creation. Here, what is human, irradiated by Divine Love, transforms into what is Divine. There is nothing other than perfect humanity-which is simply the conscious realization that God alone exists.
