In their joint exhibition “All Souls”, brothers Kris and Scott Neely fill the Bijou Gallery in downtown Spartanburg, SC with spiritual images. Developing his Guardian motif, Kris Neely presents large wood assemblages in angelic form. The aerial playfulness of his constructions overcomes the weight of their material composition. In contrast, Scott Neely’s minimalist paper installations lightly balance on the gallery surface. His repetition of simple patterns evokes the steady discipline of meditation. Paired with the brothers’ work, photographer Carri Bass shares pictures of the female body in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Intimate and bold, her photos draw together the opposite forces of the show, focusing both the physical power of Kris’s paintings and the exposed delicacy of Scott’s, to communicate the strength and vulnerability of all souls.
