Besides creating his biting editorial cartoons that we heard about in last week's interview, JIM MORIN has a flourishing career as a painter. As he writes, My paintings are ultimately another form of journalism: that is, observing, analyzing and recording societal progression and our relationship to the changing world around us. We talk about the connection between these two streams of Jim's artistic life. I went to the Lowe Art Museum expecting to see a small exhibition of roman era mosaics from Tunisia. What I didn't expect was a smiling, but otherwise apocalyptic figure: a woman dressed in black astride a chopper made of a cow skeleton. BILLIE GRACE LYNN spoke with me about her "working" sculpture, then sounded the horn. You guessed it, "MOOOOOOO!" I want people to remember themselves, in much the same way that babies discover their fingers. When my work is successful, the piece is completed by the viewer-participant and she/he continues her/his journey more aware and delighted in being a body. And just back from an exciting trip to India, RICHARD DAVIS brings a report of his findings:  indigenous mosaics adorning a multitude of structures and 19th century Italian figurative work. He'll take us on a guided tour.
