“Absolute: Allegory” is a visual poem; a softly lit bedtime story of the sun and moon, a meandering journey, an example of the importance of life beyond the current moment. A sprig of crimson winter berries hovers to the right of a 2-pronged branch. The left side of the stick weaves through the circular voids in the pastel background. Subdued yellow and blue geometry hint at the celestial themes of this piece. They are purposeful nods to the interplay between crescent and full moons, an eclipse and the full sun, and daylight and nighttime views through an arched window. Like most of the work in this series, this painting is a story within a story. Read on for more.

New Robotics Art & International Paintings To Show at Columbus Museum of Art
by Daric Gill
It is my great pleasure to announce the long-awaited opening of Greater Columbus, an exhibition featuring works by myself and a small group of outstanding artists based in central Ohio. The exhibition represents a wonderful partnership between the Columbus Museum of Art and the Greater Columbus Arts Council. This is my second exhibition at the museum representing this generous award by the Arts Council. To say that I’m grateful is an understatement. Last year’s museum exhibition in conjunction with a 3-month artist residency in Dresden, Germany are among my most pleasurable achievements as an artist.
A jury of distinguished arts professionals working outside the region awarded Individual Artist Fellowships to Molly Jo Burke & Nathan Gorgen, Nick Larsen, Laura Larson, and Christopher Burk. Greater Columbus features their work alongside myselfand Chaz O’Neil, who were selected for additional residencies in Dresden, Germany as part of the Arts Council’s Artist Exchange Program.
I have selected 5 pieces for the exhibit including the special debut of an interactive light and sound sculpture. Additionally, there are 3 paintings made during my residency in Germany and another larger painting with international ties to Cuba.
A reception has not been planned for the foreseeable future. However, the exhibition is open for in-person experience and we are actively adding new virtual programs for the public. The museum, art council, and I welcome each one of you to visit and support artwork that is culturally viable and globally relevant. Please enjoy the image gallery below and the in-person exhibition if you can.
Naturally, there’s still a lot of planning and time between now and the summer of 2022, but I’m enthusiastic about the opportunity and wanted to share this exciting news as it came in. More info and posts will come as things get buttoned down, but I’d like to be the first to thank the museum and all of their supporters for the excellent groundwork that they have laid for artists. I look forward to it!
