These series of works reflect the artist’s realization that life’s every movement possesses a humorous bend in the river, where one may be given aid by animals, magicians and shamans or menaced by devils, clowns and bumble bees. Where you go depends upon where you have been, and where you can go depends upon what you can imagine.
"My work has always claimed an element of water in its narrative, because of the movement and immigration of my Irish family and my being baptized, or my first bath in the Columbia River, I have alway’s looked for fresh water. Characteristically all of these works are autobiographical, different chapters and never in order of appearance, markings on my life." - Jerry Allen Gilmore
