Like Clockwork seeks to showcase works of art that address the nature of time. From birth, our daily routines, anxieties on aging, death, rebirth, to creation and destruction, the forms of time give shape to human experience. Traditional thought, from China to ancient Greece, embodies time not only in gods and goddesses but also in the various devices which measure and grasp it. Time as a flux is apparent in the flow of grains in an hourglass; time as eternal return, in the circling aeons of the Indian and Maya calendars or the tail-eating serpent Ouroboros; time as a universal pattern of synchronous events, in the I-Ching or the astrologers’ intricate figure-work. The paradoxes inherent in these parallel ways of conceiving time reveal the mysterious Coincidence of Opposites which underlies the cosmos. It’s as the old adage says.. all “like clockwork”…
We are accepting works from emerging, mid-career, and/or professional artists. Work should somehow relate to the theme of the show.
Vestige Concept Gallery is an in-person arts display space and store located in Pittsburgh’s Lawrenceville, a fun arts, culture, and shopping neighborhood. We promote and sell works to casual walk-in’s, private clients, as well as online, through mixed exhibitions and events.
