"All things come out of the one, and the one out of all things."-Heraclitus

That's right folks, we are all connected within this big giant universe of ours, and you know what? This is GREAT news because who wouldn't want to be connected to the beautiful and incredibly talented Jenny Morgan? Or at least that is what you will be asking yourself when you attend the opening for Jenny's latest solo exhibition, "One and the Many," tomorrow from 6:30-9:00pm here at Like the Spice. Jenny's newest portraits are filled with life and spirit; stare at one long enough (it's difficult not to) and you honestly feel as though you may be communing with another soul. Through her work it seems that Jenny is able to facilitate these correspondences effortlessly, but we all know that it takes much more to finish a piece. Fragile layers upon layers of paint are laid down with care and then roughed away to create multiple dimensions of depth and color; this pushes and pulls the viewer and the subject from a present reality to a past one. Who are these people? Where do they come from? Why do I feel like the see me? And these are just a few of the questions you might have for Jenny when you see the hauntingly beautiful faces that make up "One and the Many."

"Reality cannot be found except in One single source, because of the interconnection of all things with one another." -Leibniz
