Today I submit Mayer's materials to the Ontario Society of Artists 130th Annual Open Juried Exhibition at the John B. Aird Gallery. The theme is Worship, which "can be approached from a variety of different perspectives....Worship refers to the act of concerning oneself with ultimate things, or it can point to the object or content of that concern. For instance, the focus of our worship may have religious dimensions, or it may be decidedly non-religious: embracing environmental or rational or cultural concerns, even lusts and fetishes. The focus of our worship can be concrete and specific or it can be intangible and ethereal. Furthermore, worship can suggest inequality between human beings, power-over and distorted relationships as well as expressing incomparable joy, centeredness and harmony between people. Worship can portray peace and bondage, ecstasy and abuse."
I don't know about the lusts, festishes, bondage, and abuse, but Mayer definitely has some paintings that would fit the theme of worship and we will give it a shot.
