Love in Multiple Forms
July 1 - July 21, 2022 | Reception: July 7, 2022, 6-8 PM
Agora Gallery is thrilled to announce Love in Multiple Forms, a group exhibition of paintings and photographs that examine the various meanings of love, straying away from conventional depictions of the theme. Love is a complex emotion. Sure, there is the Romeo and Juliet kind of love, that passion that burns inside of us when we fall for someone; a raw sentiment that consumes the flesh and blinds the mind. Yet love is so much more than an irrational coup de foudre. When stripped of selfish motives, it blossoms into a mature feeling of compassion for the natural space that holds us and the beings that inhabit it.
The artists in this exhibition capture love from different angles: love for our planet and our ancestors, love rising out of pain, self-love, love of life, romantic love, love gone wrong. No matter the context or provenance, love is behind every action we take and every breath we draw. Love is love. Love is life.
