The Flowering (The Fourfold Sense)
Darren Waterston and Tyrus Miller
A suite of prints and broadsides inspired by the life of St. Francis of Assisi

San Francisco artist, Darren Waterston, will be featured in a two-part exhibition in the Hoffman Gallery of Contemporary Art this fall. Constellations: Paintings by Darren Waterston will feature recent monumental and intimate oil paintings which typify Waterston’s abstracted representations of invisible realms.

Accompanying the paintings will be Waterston’s most recent project based on the life of St. Francis of Assisi. The Flowering (The Fourfold Sense) is a portfolio of 13 hand-colored prints by Waterston and 13 broadsides written by Tyrus Miller, professor of modern European literature at the University of California at Santa Cruz. The title, The Flowering, alludes to the Fioretti, or The Little Flowers of St. Francis, the 14th century florilegium account of the saint’s life. The contemporary installation of images with text is a fictive interpretation of the St. Francis legend in twenty-first century art and poetry.
