Karey Kessler, here is the Place, detail, watercolor on paper, 3’x6′, 2020

Through the use of map imagery, Karey Kessler’s art explores what it means to be here.

Here can be a specific, known physical place, or, it can be an infinite conceptual space – a spiritual realm filled with time, light, and energy. Her maps tell the story of an ever changing environment, impermanence, and the immensity of time.

The title of Karey Kessler’s show at Shift Gallery, here is the Place, references the fact that Ha-Makom, the Hebrew word for “the Place,” is also a synonym for God.
