Sami Davidson’s Celestial Garden is a panoply of kaleidoscopic gestural mark-making that exudes a sense of otherworldliness. I feel my place in the universe when I gaze upon the current work. I feel the cosmic insignificance of my short little life. I understand that I am to the universe what an ant is to earth. But, I do not despair; I rejoice! Insignificance is subjective. I am comfortable with my level of importance (purely the function of being a human, not being a significant human) on earth. On a universal scale, importance sounds horribly troublesome and frightening (being subjected to human consciousness and all the allusions of grandeur that come with it are quite enough for me [sometimes too much!]), but I don't want to be lost in a dull void. So, there is tremendous comfort in knowing that I am only a tiny blot in an endless sea of unimaginable beauty. We will never know all the secrets of the universe, but their abstract visual iterations through the lens of telescopes leave no doubt about the immeasurable beauty we get to be a tiny part of.
