SAN FRANCISCO, CA (July 23, 2015) – Mirus Gallery is proud to open its newest exhibit, One Is All Is One, by artist-scientist Casey Cripe. The show will open with a complimentary reception from 7 to 10 p.m. on Saturday, August 15 and continue through Saturday, September 12, 2015.
The exhibit features large-scale multimedia pieces created by the 31-year-old artist over the last five years. Containing densely detailed layers of scientific diagrams meant to explore life, self, and the universe, each work individually unfolds as part of a greater story. Now at 30 pieces and counting, the works in One Is All Is One aim to illustrate a journey through space and time; the grand narrative of Human Destiny in the Universe.
"This work is to be my ‘one and forever’ magnum opus, the meaning for my being, my gift to the human enterprise," Cripe explains, "for these maps that I craft are not only to chart and guide my own path, but also the paths of all fellow humans."
