Joe Tilson: Alchera
Cristea Roberts Gallery
We are delighted to share Joe Tilson: Alchera, an Online Viewing Room featuring a selection of ten prints by Joe Tilson (b. 1928) and an accompanying film, made almost fifty years ago, which bring to life a complex world of nature, ecology, and philosophy.
Made between 1971 and 1980 the works, replete with references to Greek Mythology, organic cyclical time, the rhythms of the cosmos, and Aboriginal culture, foster in us, at a time of urgent ecological concern, a deeper understanding of the elements of the natural world.
“Our imagination must be geared passionately to the universe – to nature. We must be always aware that we are part of the cycles of continual change in a thin breathing veil of air, water and earth, our temple sphere.” -Joe Tilson
