WITH HONEY FROM THE ROCK

Richard Taittinger Gallery is pleased to present WITH HONEY FROM THE ROCK, a solo exhibition of new works by American artist Nick Theobald. Drawn from the Old Testament, the title refers to the final gift in God’s vow to reward the faithful: “But you would be fed with the finest of wheat; with honey from the rock I would satisfy you” (Psalm 81:16). Like the bible verse suggesting that willful submission is rewarded by satisfaction, Theobald investigates the space between control and surrender in his intricate compositions that engage with unaltered beeswax.

Opening reception November 3, 5-8pm.
