Exhibition Overview

Sharon Sussman painted all the works in her series Po‘i Nā Nalu from the same spot looking at the same wave break on the North Shore over a period of six months. Her works describe the rhythm and life cycle of the break, the water, and the day, not the wave itself.

Jesse Christensen’s five wall sculptures from his Forbidden Image series offer a wry and off-center anthropological tweak of the “primitive” artifact. Constructed of wood and computer parts, they suggest masks, temple maps or ritual objects of an ancient extraterrestrial cargo cult.

The Spalding House Café is open Tuesday-Saturday, 11am–2pm; Sunday noon-2pm.
