Excerpt: October 2017 ‘Salon2017’ by critic and curator Georgia Erger

The didactic, critical, and celebratory functions of art have, throughout history, been employed in the service of widely held or fringe systems of belief. These belief systems can incorporate any combination of religious, cosmological, spiritual, philosophical, political, or ideological beliefs and openly embrace vernacular forms of culture that challenge traditional hierarchies of high and low art. Destry Sparks and Sarbani Ghosh work within, and revel in the wonder of, spiritual and cosmological systems of belief. The found biomorphic forms—bones, shells, bits of string and metal—floating dreamily upon the surface of Sparks’s assemblage paintings stimulate a contemplation of past and future mythologies.

The approach to the work of Destry Sparks can be found on this short on YouTube.
