Every action has an Equal and Opposite Reaction

Newton’s Third Law echoes through my head every single day. Nothing exists in a vacuum and everything we do has a consequence or side effect. (As Hans Dose pointed out the other day—a hangover is a perfect example.) While it’s easy to see this theory as good connecting to bad, I like to emphasize the flip side to that exchange: bad things can have unexpected positive effects.

I have been creating work based on my own beliefs and misunderstandings of physics and astro physics, trying to visualize the ways science shapes my personal theology. When given the opportunity to show at F Plus Gallery, I decided to share this exercise with some artists I'm particularly keen on. It’s a lot like having my favorite band cover the song that’s been stuck in my head for months.

NEWTON’S THIRD features work in a variety of media from over 30 artists. It is the first show I have curated outside of work since Girls!Girls!Girls! at Phone Booth Gallery. Against my instincts, I will refrain from expounding on the love I have for each of these artists and their limitless talents and just say— it's all killer and no filler with this crowd. Lots of those names are links, so please click!
