BOCA RATON, Fla. – “Spirit lives in everything” – This iconic quote by the late artist Sari Dienes serves as the entryway to the standout new exhibition by the Boca Raton Museum of Art of three breakthrough artists: Sari Dienes (1898-1992), Matthew Schreiber (b. 1967-), and Sri Prabha (b. 1969-). The work of each artist is showcased within its own gallery in this winning trifecta that encompasses the museum’s first floor. All three spaces are on view from June 14 through October 22 and are curated by Associate Curator of the Museum Kelli Bodle.

An inspiration to Jasper Johns and Robert Rauschenberg, Sari Dienes was an important figure during the seminal decades of the mid-century art world in New York. Her exhibition Incidental Nature features three core elements of her six decades of artmaking: her 1950s street rubbings, works inspired by her time in Japan, and portraits of her famous circle of artists.

Matthew Schreiber is one of the world’s foremost hologram and laser artists. Exploring Schreiber’s process more deeply than any previous showing of his work, his drawings and holograms in his exhibition Orders of Light include ephemeral images of spiritualist medium communities in Lily Dale, New York and Cassadaga, Florida. His works on paper feature blind contour studies, peripheral view drawing, and lens-less photography.

Sri Prabha masterminds a site-specific installation titled Resonator – Reanimator, fusing ideas from Vedic eastern philosophy and western science to explore our connection to the natural world. Melded together, they land the viewer within a psychedelic multiverse of saturated colors.

“These three artists – Sari Dienes, Matthew Schreiber and Sri Prabha – all bring to light the tools of perception; and visitors who experience this tour de force at the Boca Raton Museum of Art will find an imaginative, multi-sensory panorama of art,” said the Executive Director of the Museum Irvin Lippman. “It is Sari Dienes’ now famous quote ‘Spirit lives in everything’ that provides a unifying arch into the creative worlds of Dienes, Schreiber and Prabha.”
