Who looks outside dreams, who looks inside awakes.
~ Carl Jung
Blake Ward's new works from his Spirits Collection illustrate his contemporary approach
to figurative sculpture with a contrarian break from formal
academicism. Ward challenges the classical figure by exposing the
interior evoking a dialogue between our internal and external selves. While building on the techniques of figurative sculpture lost in antiquity, Ward remains true to their representational
qualities, yet his Spirit Collection is a transgression of the rules,
crossing over into the abstract and ethereal realms of our inner
1/4 life-size, partial figures materialize before us. Both seductive
and tragic, their perfect proportions reflect the hidden perspectives of
our human condition. The textured exterior surface alludes to the
complexity of our individuality. The open, exposed interior elicits
introspection. Holding fast to his love of the human figure, Ward leads
us toward self-discovery.
Currently living in Monaco, Canadian artist, Blake Ward will be attending the opening reception.

SCULPTURES ON EXHIBIT AT
NATIONAL HELLENIC MUSEUM
APRIL 14 - 30
Dr. John Seiradakis, Radio Astronomer and Physics Professor at the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, and one of the foremost experts on the Antikythera Mechanism, will
discuss the analog computer from 205 BC that was designed to predict
astronomical positions, accompanied by Terry Poulos' sculptures.
More than 2000 years ago, Greek scientists created the world's first computer.
mechanism that used brass gearwheels to predict the movements of the
sun, the moon, and most of the planets, now known as the Antikythera
Mechanism, is the world's first computer. Found by Greek sponge divers
in an ancient shipwreck, its corroded remnants give us fresh insights
into history and challenge our assumptions about technology transfer
over the ages.
John Seiradakis, Radio Astronomer and Physics Professor at the
Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, Greece, will discuss the work of
an international team of experts who used 21st century technology to
decode the truth behind the world's first computer. The discussion will
be accompanied by the sculptures of our own "Indiana Jones" Terry
Poulos, who created the "Arti-kythera ~Homage to the World's First Computer."
