Recalling the Chimæra is a collaborative three-person exhibition featuring work by artist Candace Jensen, artist and poet Coleman Stevenson and ink-maker and artist Thomas Little. The show features animist text and image investigations, illuminated sigils and calligraphic symbols, cross-species collaborative artifacts, and ætherial visual geometries. The exhibition itself is the Chimæra, and the makings of a ritual to rewild language, to come back into conversation with the nonhuman, the inhuman, the magic and the impossible through figurations of speech and symbol.

Join artists Candace Jensen, Thomas Little & Coleman Stevenson to celebrate the opening of Recalling the Chimæra. Light Refreshments to be served, free and open to the public!

Exhibition on view from May 5th - June 5th, 2022

Thomas is an ink and pigment maker who explores mystic and scientific concepts through the lens of ink and our relationship to mark making. He gathers threads from alchemical imagery, chemical phenomena, mystic observations and incorporates them into a holistic synthesis theory of art-science-magic. The natural world informs his work with ink in not only the materials used, but the relationships expressed between organism and element. He makes the pigments he uses and sells from firearms he takes out of circulation and dissolves in acid. He works with slime mold (Physarum polycephalum) to produce cross species collaborative artifacts. He has contributed pigments to university material libraries, including the University of Massachusetts and the University of Pennsylvania. He has curated exhibits on pigment histories and taught numerous workshops in museums, art studios and botanicas.
