You Come To Life

Oct 28, 2023—Jan 28, 2024

You Come To Life brings to ArtYard two artists whose work gives form to stories and histories of places remembered, imagined, and dreamt.

In his woven work, Ricky Bearghost gathers together objects that call to places and people of importance to his life. The physical threads holding together his textile works rhyme with those radiating outwards and connecting his life.

In rhythm with the spell-like rapture of his dreaming, BJ Armour’s drawing and painting practice bring into this world lovingly entangled visions of another world, in which pop culture heroes, loved ones living and no longer, alter-egos, and his own powers to move through time offer companionship, love, affirmation, and agency.
