AS IN A GLASS HIVE
Text: Angelos Sikelianos, 1884 – 1951 Fragment from ‘Thalero’.
As in a glass hive my soul moved within me, a happy beeswarm that secretly growing larger seeks to send out to the trees its clusters like bunches of grapes.
ΣΑ ΣΕ ΚΥΒΕΡΤΙ ΓΥΑΛΙΝΟ ΜΕΣΑ ΜΟΥ ΣΑΛΕΥΕ Η ΨΥΧΗ, ΠΑΣΙΧΑΡΟ ΜΕΛΙΣΣΙ, ΠΟΥ ΟΛΟ ΚΡΥΦΑ ΠΛΗΘΑΙΝΟΝΤΑΣ ΓΥΡΕΥΕΙ ΣΜΑΡΙΑ ΩΣΑΝ ΤΣΑΜΠΙΑ ΣΤΑ ΔΕΝΔΡΑ Ν’ ΑΜΟΛΗΣΗ

As in a Glass Hive by Miles Lowry and Georgia Angelopoulos
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.
