Phil Sugden | Pages from the Manual on Dismantling God
October 18 – November 22
PAGES is an installation of 21 drawings that explore the possibility of breaking down a dichotomy between one’s self and the rest of the universe. Using imagery and texts from and inspired by scriptures such as the Dead Sea Scrolls, Old and New Testaments, Bhagavad Gita, Upanishads, Dhammapada, Buddhist texts, etc., Sugden attempts to compel the viewer to “read” the visual language of the drawings intuitively. Each individual drawing has seven layered pages – seven being the archetype of completeness. The size of each page is phi, the ratio 1.618, also known as the Golden Ratio. The paper itself is handmade from the Daphne plant in the Himalayan foothills and is used by Buddhists monks for their woodblock printed prayer books.
PHILIP SUGDEN is an artist and filmmaker based in Findlay. He is currently professor of studio art at Bluffton University. His work has been shown in more than 200 exhibitions in museums and galleries internationally, including New York, Los Angeles, London, Paris, Washington, Melbourne and Kathmandu.

About the Walter E. Terhune Gallery
The 1,300-square foot Gallery is part of the Center for Fine and Performing Arts. It is committed to exhibiting diverse, vibrant visual arts created by faculty, students and community members, and to embedding arts programming within the curriculum. Exhibits at the Gallery — both in the main exhibit space and along the outside wall — have spanned a wide range of media and styles, from traditional art to interactive, multi-media installations.
The Gallery is named on behalf of the Walter E. Terhune, following a donation in 2003 to the Owens Community College Foundation from KeyBank’s Terhune Memorial Fund. Established in 1926, the Walter E. Terhune Memorial Fund was created by Mr. Terhune’s daughter, Alice Crosby Terhune, to honor her father who was a longtime Toledo businessman and philanthropist. Mr. Terhune was an owner and officer of Clark and Terhune Lumber Merchants, a successful lumber company in the 1800s.
