"Almost every artwork comes with questions. If not related to subject matter or meaning, then to maker or context. Great art, and art shows as it were, is about asking great questions. I offer this as portent and introduction to the quizzical and engaging group show currently on view at Southfirst (60 N. 6th St.), That Sinking Sense of Wonder curated by artist Jesse Bransford. The only press release offered from Bransford is a set of free associative drawings which randomly rotate on the Southfirst website. This seems cryptic until one considers that a major key to answering at least some of the questions in this show lies in appreciating the artist's works and interests which include the occult, icons and motifs of antiquity, and the categorization / ordering of celestial bodies. . ."
