“Cynefin” (pronounced ku-nev-in) references a primal, fierce attachment to a part of the land. Cynefin is an ongoing exhibition at the Cheryl Hazan Gallery in Manhattan (through May 27, 2017) of sculptures and paintings by American artist Thomas Sayre. The exhibition showcases the artist's relationship between human-made objects and the land from which they have sprung. Recent paintings made with roofing tar and Kilz paint on Masonite panels are featured, as well as a number of earthcastings.
