With Word and Song includes collagraphs, paintings and collages that incorporate musical facsimiles, as well as her most beloved textural pieces, Sandra Bowden’s work is a complex meditation on time, incorporating Biblical archaeological references and ancient text. The mystery of the word as a vehicle of communication across generations has been an important component of her personal iconography, using segments of language and text as design within the image. Her visual imagery is a provocative example of art centered both figuratively and literally in word. She views the musical score as a kind of language that transcends written languages and also sees music as one of the most rich historical influences of the chuch in culture. The work in this show traces her interest and intrigue With Word and Song. She finds a source of mystery in the evolution of the word, visibly recorded and presented historically in a variety of ways.
