Burns and watercolor on Okawara. The Greek god Pan, two nymphs, an Israeli girl and a classical dancer join whirling dervishes, leaping, waltzing, and twirling across an antique map of Iran. Grounding their choreography is a quote from the American film, Practical Magic. It reads, “Do you ever put your arms out and just spin and spin and spin? Well, that’s just what love is like.” The Garden of Joys seek to unite Western and Muslim, man and woman, nature and ideation, Thanatos and Eros in an ecstatic act of drawing.
