Fans in a stream
- Kevin Mortensen

‘The title for the exhibition ‘Fans in a stream’ comes from Japanese culture. The fan is the symbol of life, the sticks radiating from the rivet, symbolizing the sun’s rays radiating out and supporting life itself. 

Ethereal spirit entities in the form of beautiful painted fans are carried by the stream. These fans never fall over, but remain upright over waterfalls, around rocky outcrops, and into still, quiet pools. A suitable metaphor for the practice and the beauty of art.’

– K.C. Mortensen, 2023
