bG gallery presents Boundaries of the Soul, a feature exhibit of new works by artist Mike Saijo. Jung, Peruvian rituals, Gnostic tenets, Buddhist texts and Homer's Odyssey come into play in this holistic exploration of the human condition.
"Earlier this year I travelled to Peru, and met with members of the Shipibo Tribe and learned about the culture and traditions of plant medicine. During my trip I had the opportunity to partake in an ayahuasca plant medicine ceremony with “Maximo”, a 90-year old maestro Shipibo shaman next to a lagoon bordering the Amazon jungle.
The works in this exhibit explore the relationship between science, nature, spirit, mathematics, mythology, memory, healing, symmetry and balance. Many of these ideas were conceived during my journey and while working with the sacred plants."
