Vivienne Shark LeWitt: Sine Proprio

7 September—10 December 2023

Vivienne Shark LeWitt
Sine Proprio (without property)

The wind blows where it will – over grassland, through tree branches, open windows, bringing the unbidden, the unplanned for. Air and light fill the open. Rich means support poor means. The solid frames the empty, the missing, the poor, the holy. What can and can't be seen, what is and isn’t there, are found to be much the same.

These works are part of Vivienne Shark LeWitt’s recent study into religious poverty and poverty of spirit in relation to art practice. 'Sine proprio' refers to the Franciscan form of life without ownership.
