Mystics: A Blessed Rage for Order brings together the work of eight artists whose work is deeply process oriented and can be characterized by meticulous detail, repetition and often a ritualistic approach towards creating art works produced in a range of media. Curated by Elizabeth Ferrer, the exhibition includes artists Chris Fennell, Matthew Franklin Wilson, Meg Hitchcock, Bernard Maisner, Rob de Oude, Jesse Pasca, Jen Stark, and Mario Trejo, who employ a variety of materials – from paper collage to gold leaf – to create pieces that can be awe-inspiring and wondrous in their painstaking detail, including a commissioned site-specific work by Rob de Oude, to be installed in two of the storefront windows of BRIC Rotunda Gallery. 

Mysticism is broadly understood as a form of spiritual experience, a transcendent level of consciousness achieved by the most rigorously devout followers of a faith.  This exhibition proposes a secular mode of mysticism rooted in artistic vision and practice that can be understood as direct expressions of the most essential aspects of self.
