As Above, So Below

November 1 - 18, 2023

The exhibition takes the phrase As Above, So Below, as its point of departure, a paraphrase of the second verse of the Emerald Tablet. This phrase was often used by occultists such as Madame Blavatsky, co-founder of the Theosophical Society, and included interpretations that suggested correspondences between the macrocosm and microcosm. These different planes of existence included illusions, some half-real, of minerals, plants, animals and humans.

Artists include: SE Bachinger, Kaya & Blank, Christine Cassano, Paula Castillo, Esha Chiocchio, Hayden Lilly Daiber, Jimmy Fike, Stephen Galloway, Bia Gayotto, Alexander Heilner, Katie Kehoe, Andrea Pinheiro, Linda-Marlena Ross, Meridel Rubenstein, Amy Scofield, Martina Shenal, Adam Thorman, Terri Warpinski

Land Rights and Human Agency Hold Together like a Finished Puzzle, Eliza Evan’s work fighting fossil fuel industry infringement on land and creating the largest land art work in existence, interview by Olivia Ann Carye Hallstein

featured ecoartspace artist

erica fitzgerald

A basket acts as a record of a time, a thought, or a feeling, carefully woven together in a monotonous ritual to create an object meant to hold or store it. My practice activates nets, tapestries, and vessels as metaphors for the complicated nature of coping with loss, grief, stress, and hardship. Various aspects of labor-making present in basketry and weaving traditions show our human bond to generational necessity and trauma coping. Each woven stitch is a small entry to hold thoughts and record feelings. Simply filing the experiences to place them elsewhere, out of sight, but most importantly, out of mind.


aquifer bag by heather johnson

The “Aquifer Bag” takes its inspiration from the Igneous Aquifer in West Texas that sits beneath the towns of Marfa and Alpine, which are experiencing dramatic booms in tourism and development. As the case with so many water tables around the U.S., the aquifer’s levels have been dropping radically due to over pumping. The embroidered topographic lines on the bag’s shell are based on a map that measures the aquifer’s depth; it is unknown how much water it still contains. Buy it now!
