Prepare to see heaven on earth. Empyrean, the fiery light of the highest celestial realm, is the theme for this exhibition of Madison Cawein’s photographs. As a spiritual realist, he searches for spiritual truths hidden in worldly reality. “To be an artist is to stand beside the door to the invisible world and be receptive to what comes through,” said Cawein. “In these images, both photographs and related paintings, I see the invisible as the Empyrean embodied symbolically as a chandelier.” This is the first exhibition for the “under new ownership” WheelHouse Art, formerly the B. Deemer Gallery. Another first: While Cawein has shown his paintings multiple times at B. Deemer, he hadn’t exhibited photographs there before (they are usually source material for his paintings). Now is the perfect opportunity as part of the 2021 Louisville Photo Biennial. Face masks are required.
