THE FIRST RAIN
Text: Angelos Sikelianos, 1884 – 1951 Fragment from ‘The First Rain’
“… with a secret turbulence, the quick swallow went breasting across the grass. Suddenly the thunder broke, the wellhead broke, and dancing came the rain.”
… Ο ΑΓΕΡΑΣ ΜΕΣ’ ΑΠΟ ΤΑ ΔΕΝΤΡΑ ΜΕ ΚΡΥΦΙΑ ΒΟΥΙΖΕ ΤΑΡΑΧΗ Η ΧΕΛΙΔΟΝΑ, ΜΕ ΤΑ ΣΤΗΘΗ, ΓΟΡΓΗ, ΣΤΗ ΧΛΟΗ ΜΠΡΟΣ-ΠΙΣΩ ΕΧΥΘΗ ΚΙ ΑΞΑΦΝΑ ΒΡΟΝΤΗΣΕ, ΚΑΙ ΛΥΘΗ ΚΡΟΥΝΟΣ, ΧΟΡΕΥΟΝΤΑ Η ΒΡΟΧΗ!

The First Rain
Miles Lowry and Georgia Angelopoulos have worked collaboratively, sharing the same paper and brush in their 2016 show A Broken Hallelujah. They presented two shows 'Cipher' and 'Marks of Devotion' in Victoria, BC and have exhibited in the group shows 'A Show of Hands' at the Grovewood Gallery in Ashville, North Carolina; ‘Calligraphies in Conversation' at the San Francisco Public Library,; and 'Crossing Boundaries’ at the Ziya Multicultural Art Center, in Oakland, California. Using Lowry’s cast cotton fibre forms, the two artists present the amphora as carriers of poetic fragments inspired by their respective cultures, their own poetry, or words of the great poets. Long and elegant, these handleless amphoras also take on the shape of ballistic shells or ancient tool heads.
