An Installation Exploring Relationships Between People
The Space Between Us Is Not Distance explores relationships between people by creating a spatial model of a relationship between two bodies. It creates a place for viewers to examine the space defined by two people, a space created by their closeness. In reality this space is built by their shared experiences, their exchanges, and their attempts to know the other. It is constantly changing and developing; it is active. The space between people is a place for them to live.
The installation compares physical sensations of distance, closeness, and separateness. These are analogous to the emotional sensations people might feel between one another. Decontextualizing them as physical experience gives the viewer the time and opportunity to make sense of them in a new way. It allows them new insight into their own relationships and a new way to understand the activities that build the spaces of their relationships.

Marywood’s Permanent Collection of fine and decorative arts provides a varied and rich resource for student research and study, as well as enriching and expanding upon the general public’s experience and appreciation of the arts within our region. The exhibition features recent acquisitions to the Permanent Collection that include paintings, prints, sculpture, and works on paper.
Landscapes, painted on site locally along the Lackawanna River in Scranton and abroad in Tuscany, Italy, reveal a strong sense of place. During the painting process each landscape unveils its mystery and beauty to the artist as he explores the motif. While attempting to understand and capture the ever–changing effects of light, color, and atmosphere, the landscape and the paintings evolve into something very different than what the artist first perceived.
