Vatic Utterance is about the subtleties of abstraction and language and how the two can morph together and be separate. The work ranges from fragments of words and coded language, to visual poetry. It involves a mix of artists working today who incorporate language in the work through different means. The artists in the show might clash and might coalesce and represent different ideas about art, language, and painting. The show's title is taken from the poem Vatic Utterance by Rene Ricard. Ricard used poetry to create paintings. This poem captures the reality of life... the rent must be paid. 

Vatic Utterance

If I love you
There is no limit
But love is Luxury
                          Housing
The rent must be
                        paid
The lease expires
Evictions are noticed
And a new Tenant
Moves in
