Unexplored – he said. I went through underground stoas, I met icy waters and deformed statues. I saw the large storage jars empty along the length of time. It became night. A lot of stars fell on rocky crevasses. Now I return. The street is deserted. Pale dawn. By my front door I find the covered basket with the snake and the pearl.

Unexplored 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.
