All Stars

4 – 31 August

To conclude its inaugural year, Peanut Gallery is hosting the ALL STARS exhibition to showcase the talented artists who have exhibited there since its opening in September 2016. After a busy and wonderful year full of exciting exhibitions and special events, the gallery is closing its doors and moving online for awhile. 

In addition to the opening of ALL STARS on Friday the 4th of August, a fundraising art auction/closing party will be held on Friday the 8th of September. A small Pozible campaign will also run to fund the printing of a limited edition retrospective book of the year of Peanut Gallery.

ALL STARS comprises of eleven outstanding artists working over a range of mediums from printmaking, to sculpture to painting and ceramics. Kyoko Imazu is a Japanese artist based in Melbourne, whose exquisite etching and aquatints have been exhibited worldwide. She is fascinated by the idea of the Yōkai, the supernatural spirits, monsters, and demons found in Japanese folklore and intertwines them with subjects of the botanical world. 

Emma Sullivan’s curious and amorphous ‘creatures’ are made of an amalgam of acrylic paint, aerosol, resin, expanding foam and clay, appear to shift and move before the viewer’s eyes. In her words, this macabre yet whimsical series exists in the place where delight meets disgust and imaginary creatures come out to play. 

Melbourne artist Hannakin’s practice centres around meticulously hand-sewing creatures which explore notions of childhood and nostalgia. In ALL STARS, two small woolly friends make an appearance nestled on either side of a divine print, who go by the names of Blossy Bud and Harper Herbert

Fruzsi Kenez also hits a playful note in pieces made for the ALL STARS exhibition. She presents two cup sets hand-made of Japanese white raku clay. One pair of ‘Conversing Cups’, the first of a new series exploring the comical nature of human interaction, as well as ‘A Speckled Tea Ceremony’, consisting of three speckled vessels perfect in their imperfection. 

Dasha Pliska creates work inspired by tales of the oldest legends and Slavic mythologies. Her meticulous graphite drawings of fierce women and mystical ink studies inspired her work For ALL STARS, where she offers three brand new prints of shrouded female forms. 

Tessa Hancock is an Adelaide-based tattooer originally from New Zealand, specializing in black and grey realism. In her signature style she presents two charcoal on paper pieces, one of the Virgin Mary in a moment of agony and another of the Son in caught in serious contemplation. 

Presenting a series of three wonderfully stripped back pencil on paper portraits, Jennifer Allnutt continues her exploration of the uncanny, the unconscious mind, and identity. Her portraits entitled Kindred Void, Infinite Zero and Sunspots are inspired by spirituality, mythology, and recent musings drawn from literature. 

Tattooer Parker Lyas is interested primarily in symbolism. He explores the balance between darkness and light and creates bold geometry-based tattoos with intricate details. He presents three original ink on antique manuscript paper pieces in this exhibition, depicting his favourite subject matter, the rose. 

Billy Oakley presents three oil on canvas pieces, loaded with energy and gestural strokes. He finds inspiration in the works of romantic masters and uses personal anectotes as subjects for his painting. The central portrait also bears has his trademark-style title, ‘Wine Drunk on the Grand Piano’, extensive and full of intrigue.  

Tayla Broekman creates original gouache paintings and limited edition prints of works depicting anthropomorphic characters as well as female portraits. Spirituality, sexuality and emotional connection all play a large part in her conceptual output, as does a strong Japanese influence. 

Kate Gagliardi offers three stunning watercolour and pencil portraits of female subjects. Using a palette stripped of bright colours, she reveals a myriad of secret tones found only in black, grey and blue. Building layer by layer with a large brush, she conveys incredible emotion in the expressions of her muses.

Lust and Introspection

16 – 29 June

Peanut Gallery presents ‘Lust & Introspection’, an exhibition of two young emerging South Australian artists. Matty Pearson paints visions and dreams of sexual encounters and domestic life. Based in rural South Australia, in this debut exhibition he explores his curiosity of the feminine and intimacy. Billy Oakley presents a series of portraits playing with ideas of disillusionment, romanticism, pontification and introspection. He explores his inner psyche through self-portraiture and portraits of others while referencing classical inspirations.

Living in the country town of Auburn in rural South Australia, Matty paints when not working on a farm. His work revolves around childhood experiences and emotions. Sexual fantasies, desires of the flesh, virginity, and a fascination with the female form inform and motivate his work. A self-taught artist with a cathartic medium at hand, he finds an escape in the expression of emotions and desires through painting.

Similarly, Billy’s inspiration comes from social encounters. His style is predominantly fauvist, with post impressionist references and a dash of romanticism for luck. His contemporary take on the work of the masters coupled with his personal style and motivations give rise to explosive energy on canvas, achieved by heavy strokes and looping colours. His refined colour palette and portrait-heavy series pinpoints his natural style, presenting a cohesive and exciting body of work. The overarching theme of disillusionment, and the balance between the internal psyche and the external world allows for a fascinating glimpse of this young artist’s mind.

Through a literal split down the middle of the gallery, (also echoed in the divisive title), a visual dialogue has been created between the works of these artists. On the one side sits LUST – presenting Matty’s curious, virginal, vulnerable pieces against INTROSPECTION – the cerebral, technically guided, psychological works of Billy. Both artists illustrate their lives and internal conflicts, providing the audience with a snapshot of romance, trial and the perils of youth.

Morbid Curiosities

19 May – 11 June

Peanut Gallery presents ‘Morbid Curiosities’, an exhibition of eight artists from around the world, curated by Fruzsi Kenez. Playing on the traditional notion of ‘The Wunderkammer’, the show explores all things bizarre, anatomical and macabre. This exhibition boasts artists from Russia, America, Ukraine and Australia and features a very unique collaboration between an illustrator and a tattooer, resulting in a ‘flash’ style tattoo event on the opening night.

One of the inspirations behind this exhibition is the work of Russian duo Rotten Fantom, comprised of Elena Snegotckaia and Vladimir Snegotskii from Moscow, Russia. They utilize dotwork techniques to create surreal, mystical black and white drawings. The chief idea driving their practice is a fascination with the natural forces’ never-ending cycle of decay and resurrection. They explore the borders between life and death and mystic sacrifice. The attention to detail in their work is incredible.

Based in Odessa in Ukraine, Dasha Pliska’s work is steeped in tales of the oldest legends and mythologies. She presents drawings of bird-like creatures that haunt the night and reoccur in Slavic folklore. In addition, she creates meticulous graphite drawings on tracing paper of fierce women with symbols steeped in the occult.

Similarly, Adelaide-based tattooer Parker Lyas is interested in symbolism and the significance of signs. His work carries trademark elements of heavy contrast, patterns, layers and texture. He explores the balance between darkness and light and creates bold geometry-based tattoos with intricate details. He has created three original ink and pen pieces for this exhibition and paired up with illustrator Fruzsi Kenez to present a unique tattooing experience on the opening night. He is found working full-time at Progression Tattoo on Unley Road.

Ally Burke esides in Virginia in the Appalachian Mountains, and creates work that is heavily inspired by nature, folklore and in her own words, ‘cosmic weirdness’. She has continued to explore these themes in her creation of work for Morbid Curiosities, with a particular emphasis on spiritualism and occultic esoterica. She has an impressive online following, and Peanut Gallery is honored to have her create four original pieces for this exhibition.

Tessa Hancock is an Adelaide-based tattooer originally from New Zealand. She works full time at Progression Tattoo, specializing in black and grey realism. Her signature subject matter is female portraiture which she continues in her original painting exhibited in this exhibition. She was particularly inspired by Central American statues of the Virgin Mary, and chose to depict her in a contemporary guise, focusing on the emotion and the moment of struggle.

Similarly, Fruzsi Kenez has had a long-held interest in religious iconography and the idea of ‘the sacred object’. She has translated this idea into the ceramic medium, capturing a balance of vulnerability and darkness. She fuses familiar domestic forms with fragments and jagged elements to imply a sort of inorganic crystallisation over time. The use of lustre adds a sense of value and purpose, seeping out in an impossibly organic way.

Emma Sullivan is a returning Peanut Gallery favourite, known for her ‘Oozy Burl’ series exhibited in Creepy/Cute. Acrylic paint, aerosol, resin, expanding foam and clay are the base ingredients for her extra-terrestrial creations which appear to shift, move and expand before the viewer’s eyes. Titles like Sabre Tooth, Ghost Man and Sparkle Tongue tantalise the viewer into a world of their own imagination. In her words, this macabre yet whimsical series exists in the place where delight meets disgust and imaginary creatures come out to play.

Fiona Roberts is an Adelaide-based multi-disciplinary artist. Themes central to her work include the home and the body, which she describes as ‘palimpsests of life events with their history inscribed into every surface.’ The subjective nature of the home is explored through a variety of body textures that are obscured by pattern, repetition, and traditional ornamentation in household furnishings. Pieces like ‘Spilt’ blur the boundaries between the home and body, inviting viewers to contemplate their relationship with everyday objects and the energies that move around them.

Babliens

21 April – 14 May

Peanut Gallery presents ‘BABLIENS’, an exhibition of six fierce female illustrators from around the world. This exhibition is a celebration of the divine feminine that simultaneously seeks to tear down the patriarchy. ‘BABLIENS’ is about embracing one’s power, sexuality and identity, shining bright despite societal expectations and pressures of conforming to the norm.

This exhibition recognizes the spectrum of gender experiences and invites viewers to traverse the private worlds of these six artists. Some open doors to very intimate spheres, such as Jordyn McGeachin (MEL), whose confessional, loaded drawings explore modern romance via online dating. These works are brilliant, vulnerable and incredibly relatable. The original pieces created for BABLIENS explore romance, sex and the thoughts/anxiety that is sometimes attached to those things.

Frances Cannon’s (MEL) work is also primarily based on personal experiences. Her work focuses on the female body and the female psyche, in particular “examining what it is like to be a woman in contemporary times; looking at ideas of body-love and body-loathing, anxiety, relationships, sex and sexuality, gender, and bodily functions.”

Paris-based illustrator, designer and tattoo artist Anna Wanda Gogusey’s (FR) work has a tinge of morbid and macabre. Crescent moons, flowers and warring animals frequent her work. She is inspired by legends, superstitions and popular culture. It is her second time exhibiting in Adelaide, having participated in Tiny Universes at Tooth & Nail Gallery in 2013, also curated by Fruzsi Kenez.

Nes Vuckovic (USA) is a Chicago-based illustrator and cartoonist with a love for the sometimes dark, slightly awkward and all round unusual. She has created a series of nine prints specifically for this exhibition, five complete with an additional manual manipulation with colour pencil, making them a one of a kind original work.

Tayla Broekman (MEL) works almost exclusively in gouache, creating work so flawless it appears as a digital dream. Her work often features anthropomorphic animal portraits, women drifting in dream, infused with elements of Japanese culture.

In the series created for BABLIENS, Ban She (ADL) seeks beauty in the banal, with each small felt marker on paper piece offering a peek into the private lives of women. Through relatable scenes depicting mundane, everyday activities, Ban She communicates a message of sisterhood, acceptance and positivity.

This exhibition is the brainchild of Peanut Gallery director Fruzsi Kenez, who has long dreamed of bringing this unique energy to Adelaide. BABLIENS is open for viewing for three weeks, from the 21st of April until the 14th of May 2017.

Half Print

17 March – 9 April

HALF PRINT presents new work by two emerging and one established Adelaide printmakers.

Lily Pook-Ryan is an emerging printmaker, arts student and dreamer with a strong interest in relief printing. Her most recent body of work is largely influenced by her love of animation, and a persistent itch to escape her reality. The works exhibited in HALF PRINT explore the fun but also slightly sinister possibilities that have only been achieved in the fantasies she has dreamt of since childhood.

Similarly, Nick Yap’s prints are inspired by escapism and a sense of adventure. A film and video games enthusiast, his works tell a story about characters who appear to have a sense of purpose and a story driving them. They appear to be heading off to an unknown planet with a bagged goldfish in hand, or on a mission of great danger and importance.

Established printmaker and illustrator Jake Holmes presents a selection of 20 pieces from a new body of screen prints created during a month-long drawing challenge to create a new drawing every day. The resulting illustrations are an attempt to capture invented characters in invented worlds. Each image provides a glimpse into a larger narrative and suggests an exciting story for the viewer to fill in. Jake’s inspiration was drawn from current personal life events, Dungeons and Dragons and ideas for comics he’s been waiting to turn into a larger story. Contained in these single layer screen prints printed by the artist are happiness, sadness, laughter, worry, joy, concern, contentedness and fear.

The works of these three brilliant young artists offer a glimpse into a realm where anything is possible, and adventure awaits anyone brave enough to take the first step.

Paradise

17 February – 12 March

This exhibition brings together ten artists from Australia and beyond to explore the notion of Paradise, and man’s place in nature. With work ranging from illustration to glass, printmaking to textiles, this exhibition will leave no stone unturned in playing with this theme. Lush jungles, mountains and little forest dwellings await!

Sydney-based Chloe Harris is inspired by places both imagined and real, which she paints in her trademark childrens-book style. Her gentle watercolour, gouache and ink paintings offer glimpses into whimsical realms where deer and fox friends roast marshmallows by a campfire, and bear families live in houses among the trees. Similarly enraptured by the secret lives of animals, Melbourne-based Kyoko Imazu creates incredibly detailed hand-etched prints with aquatint. Her recurring fantasies of small animals like cats, rabbits and rodents overthrowing society heavily influence her subject matter and exploration of the concept of Paradise.

Nayana Iliffe is an artist, mother and crafter with a home among the trees in Byron Bay. She creates meticulous animal portraits and finds wonder and inspiration in the natural world. This admiration of Australian wildlife closely interlinks with the work of Chloe Duffin, who’s acute eye for textural vibrancy, and little details in specimens is central to her works. Often combining pencil and watercolour with digital editing, her prints take on new layers of meaning for both the artist and the viewer.

Doris Chang’s wide ranging practice stretches from humorous gift cards to wondrous watercolour landscapes that are meditations on paper. She describes her process as very relaxed, ‘more like pushing and pulling pigment around’. She lets the materials guide her, manifesting themselves into being. André Lawrence also approaches his practice in a spiritual way, offering ‘Hair feathers for Earth Angels’, beautiful individually hand carved, whittled and shaped hair pins sustainable sourced from timbers native to the Northern Territory. These beautiful pins resonate with a special energy, connecting two deeply spiritual and symbolic objects – feathers and hair.

Melbourne-based Alice Lindstrom teams iconic Modern artists with dress and fabric design in her collage series. These poppy portraits expertly combine bold shapes and colours with glowing portraits of young ladies in the guises of famous painterly muses. Similarly, Esther Sandler draws on her background in fashion and printed textiles to create unique patterns that mix together contrasting elements including flora and fauna, traditional textile motifs and abstract geometric shapes. Her work has a signature hand painted look with bold and joyful use of colour that completely embodies the Paradise theme.

Also playful and bold, New-Zealand born George Agius works out of the JamFactory, and is well known for her tongue-in-cheek ranges that represent food in glass. In Paradise she offers some choice pieces from her playful series ‘Sunny Side Up’, that engage the viewer with humour and curiosity. Portugese Daniel Moreira connects through themes as memory, time and place, where through drawing and installation a dialogue is established with the natural world and the fiction surrounding landscape. His intimate portraitscapes and artist books tell a story that uniquely explores the connection between man and nature.

Cosmic Visions

27 January – 12 February

Cosmic Visions brings together three outstanding Australian artists working with the print/ illustration medium. Their work combines themes of geometry, mortality and a curiousity of the cosmos. This exciting exhibition of predominantly black and white works on paper reveal a curious combination of both fantastical and morbid themes that explore the very nature of human connection.

Kate Bohunnis examines the reflections of one’s internal landscapes through intricate hand-pulled screen prints on Hahnemühle paper. Her prints celebrate the interconnection found in our intimacy with self and explore the significance of the symbiotic relationship between the internal ‘me’ and external ‘them’. She presents the thought that the bridges that connect ‘us’ may be what sustain us the most. Bohunnis’ stunning prints invite the viewer to delve into their own ideas about what connectivity means to them.

Fitzroy-based VEINS (Christian Vine) strictly works with the medium of ink on paper, with the contrasting values of black and white underpinning his key concepts and chosen subject matter, juxtaposing people, body parts, plants and other miscellaneous objects. He explores recurring dreams, unfinished love, and subconscious premonitions through the therapeutic ritual of
artistic practice.

Jayaism (Jaya Suartika)’s primary medium is tattooing. He has created a series of works for Cosmic Visions focusing on the sub-conscious visions of the individual’s internal cosmic realm. In his uniquely explicit style, these five large hand-pulled screen prints delve into the inner psyche of our eternal affair with Love, Sex and Death. Jaya questions notions central to the human condition – Why do we do what we do? Why do we love? Why do we fuck? Why does any of it matter? Is it all out of our control, or do we have free will?

Independent Lady Artists of Adelaide 2017 Calendar

2 December – 22 January

This unique calendar has been carefully curated and designed by local graphic designer Caroline Gliddon, and this exhibition curated by Fruzsi Kenez. Bringing together twelve of Adelaide’s finest independent lady artists and illustrators, Caroline has created an unforgettable keepsake that is a first of its kind. After a year in the works it is now available for purchase at Peanut Gallery throughout the duration of this exhibition, choice local stockists and online at ladyartistsofadelaidecalendar.com

Ten of the twelve artists of the calendar are able to participate in this exhibition, presenting a combination of original works and limited edition prints to tell a multi-layered narrative infusing portraiture, themes of nature and abstraction.

Conservation and a reverence for nature lies at the heart of Chloe Duffin’s gentle watercolour and pencil works. Her bird and leaf studies reveal an acute eye for detail and a spiritual practice. Doris Chang creates studies of landscapes and plant specimens in watercolour and ink, in addition to developing whimsical animal characters that feature in her prints and gift cards.

Jessica Thompson and Elle Dawson-Scott form an unofficial partnership, often exhibiting together and collaborating on wonderful projects. Their works sit delightfully side by side, completing each other’s visual sentences. Jessica’s painted pots and panels whisper secret chants of encouragement, while Elle’s embroidered hoops seek to bring a smile to one’s face.

Joslin Koolen is the creative force behind A.nouk, a multi-disciplinary business that sees her crafting plant installations, creating artworks, and designing vessels and stands. Drawing on a lifetime of diverse cultural experiences and time spent in nature, Jos presents three original panels in her stripped back, abstract style in this exhibition.

Laura Horn is exhibiting a series of limited edition prints in her trade-mark style. She has kindly made these prints specifically for this exhibition, as she generally exhibits only original paintings. Her pieces evolve naturally and spontaneously, often changing course several times before revealing themselves in finality.

Claire Ishino is inspired by her love of patterns, forms and flowers and uses them as a visual metaphor for her thoughts and feelings. This particular series was inspired by walks in the Adelaide Botanical Gardens and serve as a reminder to appreciate the beauty of nature.

Fruzsi Kenez is presenting a series of small watercolour portraits she painted during her year spent in Japan in 2014. They are inspired by quiet moments of contemplation at Shinto shrines and the observation of daily interactions. Similarly, Bel Short documents the quiet moments and enjoys painting quirky characters and expressions. Her work explores the changing of seasons through sweet female portraits.

Tracy Chaplin’s hoop series combines bold colours and striking patterns, drawing on both vintage and contemporary fashion influences. Her pieces are beautiful and very collectable.

Alice Lindstrom and Julie White feature in the calendar but were unable to participate in the exhibition.

Creepy / Cute

28 October – 27 November 2016

Creepy/Cute is a celebration of all things strange and wonderful that defy expectation and categorization. This exhibition invites fifteen artists from around the world to create a realm where anything is possible, and rules, regulations and genders do not exist.

The meticulous works of Melbourne-based Kate Gagliardi explore notions of mortality and the fleeting nature of beauty. Similarly, Jennifer Allnutt’s depictions of skulls mash classical notions of beauty with a sinister undertone, winking at the style and subject matter of artists Frida Kahlo and Paula Rego. Ukrainian Dasha Pliska’s ‘Birds of Solar Garden’ print series draw inspiration from mythological narratives centred around strong female characters such as ‘Sirin’, a bird-maiden who is the ambassadress of the underworld, luring vulnerable souls into the realm of death through song. 

Baby Teefff and Daria HK both explore an internal landscape through illustration. Baby Teefff through imbuing seemingly innocent subject matter with elements of horror that result in an enchantingly warped fusion of the two. And Daria through the tackling of mental health issues and the repercussions of trauma via the cathartic nature of self-portraiture.

Luka Va’s inspiration comes from observing human rituals in everyday city life, and creating zoomorphic creatures that embody these qualities. The recurring sloth character plays on this theme of laziness in the fast paced modern world. Besides Luka’s quirky enamel pins sit ‘Unicorn Candycat’ and ‘Milkshake Racoon’ in deep discussion. Hand-crafted from start to finish by incredible Russian artist Daria Lapto, with heads that turn 360 degrees and adjustable limbs perfect to accentuate a simple gesture.

Ban She is a local portrait painter with a wonderful comic style. Her vibrant pieces burst with colour, while describing humorous personal narratives. For example ‘Greed’ combines her ‘’love of seafood with the vibrancy of the ocean’s flora and fauna in the most sadistic way possible.’’ Similarly, Melbourne-based Tayla Broekman utilises narratives from her personal life through reflecting versions of herself and people she knows through human and anthropomorphic characters. Spirituality, sexuality and emotional connection all play a large part in her conceptual output.

Grace Mitchell’s ‘Epic Journey’ is a multi-layered paper piece that explores the longing for a childhood full of fabulously queer role models to look up to. Her bright piece is nestled among a cluster of Melbourne artist Hannakin’s hand-sewn creatures which also explore notions of childhood and nostalgia. Emma Kidd’s illustrations on book pages paint a calm picture of slow-moving dugongs and whimsical forest creatures. Her hand-painted articulated dolls and limited edition zine make wonderful additions to the Creepy/Cute offering.

Seattle-based married duo MarninSaylor create fantastical covetable plush toys by hand and collaborate with graphic artists to create illustrated prints inspired by their products. Their best-selling Maple Bears and Donut Cats feature in Creepy/Cute, which also marks MarninSaylor’s first appearance in an Australian exhibition. Similarly fantastical and rather creepy are French artist Stan Manoukian’s illustrated zombies and gizmos, who’s enormous eyes and fuzzy coats paint a spooky picture.

Emma Sullivan’s ‘Oozy Burls’ dot the gallery with gold tipped glaciers and squishy pink rock formations that play with notions of scale and familiarity. Irresistible to touch yet alien at once, her expanding foam and resin forms are the perfect completion to the wonderland that is Creepy/Cute.

Of Land and Sea

30 September – 23 October 2016

Of Land and Sea brings together twelve artists from around the world to explore grand maritime narratives and man’s connection to nature. This exhibition invites strange creatures to come out to play, and marauders to find themselves in nature.

Peter Fong’s ink on paper fish studies are reminiscent of early explorers’ documentations of newly discovered species. This idea is central to Daniel Moreira’s mini – series in which three early Portuguese explorers on their quest to ‘the city of gold’ find themselves transformed into the mythical aquatic beasts they feared encountering. Moreira’s manual interventions play with the idea of colonisation, and man’s urge to discover, claim and conquer. Melbourne based Kyoko Imazu’s delicate etchings wink at a similar notion with titles such as ‘First Contact’, whilst interweaving her own imagined narratives about creatures of the natural world.

Cat Rabbit draws inspiration from Japanese culture, playfully personifying flora and fauna alike to weave a delightful web of multi-sensory experiences. Hand-sewn tapestries with floating egg-kitten urchins befriend neighbouring avocado charms. Gary Seaman’s layered aerosol and ink portraits appear to ponder the workings of the universe and the fate of Earth herself.

Katherine Wheeler’s porcelain creatures appear to be of both of land and sea, fragile as though made of bone, yet porous and light like a piece of coral. Her ceramic creatures reach out to the viewer as though beckoning to be picked up and held close. Similarly, Sydney-based Emma Kidd’s hand-painted articulated creatures invite an emotional connection, and transport the viewer to another time and place through the wink of an eye and the playful swish of a mane and tail.

Melbourne-based Kate Gagliardi’s meticulous mountain studies capture the most minute details of landscape, whilst simultaneously conveying the awesome power and magnitude of a mountainside. Cathy McMurray’s inspiration is found among the hills and valleys of Portland, Oregon. She hand dyes small batches of locally sourced thread and repurposed materials to create tapestries that wink towards a simpler time.

Nomadic sign painter Bohie Palecek plays with ideas of (dis)connection and the journey into the unknown. Courage, adventure and nostalgia are the central themes in her most recent body of work in which she creates keepsakes and artefacts from found and discarded materials.

Tristan Kerr’s piece entitled Catharsis exemplifies the painstaking process of signwriting, and the preciousness and precariousness of his materials. Lana Adams captures the world around her through her photo series. Pondering on nostalgia, relationships and the passage of time. We invite you to join us on this journey.
