“Do not think there is anything outside the Great Ocean, and do not think there is anything more than the Great Ocean…the Great Ocean just is.” ~ Reverend Master Jiyu Kennett, Founding Abbess of Shasta Abbey Buddhist Monastery

“This show is a result of a year-long inquiry on the nature of Death and my desire to understand the pathways of consciousness through matter. I hope these treasure maps can show you how to tell yourself a story, or how to ask the questions as we navigate through this terrain of form to formlessness and back again in this holy task of living.” ~ Nickki Lee Hill

“From childhood, I’ve been collecting dead things, not really knowing why. Since I began preparing for this show almost two years ago, I have had no choice in accepting impermanence as I experience the cycles of life and death around me. Greeting each day in stillness, I do the work that comes to me.” ~ Eloise Larson
