WHAT YOU LOVE
Text: Sappho, 650 BC. Fragment 16
Some men say an army of horse and some men say an army of foot and some men say an army of ships is the most beautiful thing on the black earth. But I say it is what you love.
ΟΙ ΜΕΝ ΙΠΠΗΩΝ ΣΤΡΟΤΟΝ, ΟΙ ΔΕ ΠΕΣΔΩΝ, ΟΙ ΔΕ ΝΑΩΝ ΦΑΙΣ’ ΕΠΙ ΓΑΝ ΜΕΛΑΙΝΑΝ ΕΜΜΕΝΑΙ ΚΑΛΛΙΣΤΟΝ, ΕΓΩ ΔΕ ΚΗΝ ΟΤ – ΤΩ ΤΙΧ ΕΡΑΤΑΙ

What You Love 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.
