IN THE NAME OF HOPE
APRIL 18 - JUNE 2
In The Name of Hope is intended to bring comfort in a time of emotional pain, sorrow, and tragedy. Loss, displacement, and hope are some of the subjects that regenerate me. My use of silicone, oils, and resins inherently implies transparency. The colors are set as a healing tool, placed with softness and sentiment (without being sentimental). This exhibition is not about the attention to color itself, but rather, it is a meditation on emotions, relationships, and feelings that take root and grow as in nature; essential to the development of the soul. Despite the subject matter, the paintings in this exhibition are meant to be uplifting, their subjects serene and ultimately defiant of their circumstances.
