a gesture waves us on

18 September - 30 October 2020

Radius Gallery's current exhibition features new, deeply imaginative artworks by John Isaiah Pepion, Sue Tirrell and Elizabeth Jean Younce.


The title of the show is derived from the poem “A Walk” by Rainer Maria Rilke (translated by Robert Bly):


My eyes already touch the sunny hill,

going far ahead of the road I have begun.

So we are grasped by what we cannot grasp;

it has its inner light, even from a distance—

and changes us, even if we do not reach it,

into something else, which, hardly sensing it,

we already are; a gesture waves us on,

answering our own wave...

but what we feel is the wind in our faces.
