Treasure Island

  • I started the month celebrating Earth Day with the amazing community at Proctor Academy. It was a moving experience, shared with artist Yuko Oda, communicating about my art journey, process and inspiration. At the workshop I offered, the students were engaged, receptive, and imaginative about painting intuitively using repurposed materials, while reflecting on solutions about the environmental crisis.

  • Thinking about solutions to the climate change urgency, this recent article (Earth Day 2024 report card) might give us some answers. Depoliticizing climate change is one of my favorite ones.

  • Today I share my painting “Treasure Island” (image). The inspiration for this work derived from my reflections about the early human explorations to mine and extract the finite “resources”: oil, gas, coal, gold, gems, metals… Humans unsustainably exploiting Earth’s womb…

  • Lastly, here are 2 exhibits where I will be participating:

    • “Obsolescence, Living With Fewer Things”, juried group exhibit by Unbound Visual Arts (UVA) curated by John Quatrale, at the UVA’s Overlook Gallery, Brighton, MA - June 9 to July 29, 2024 - Opening reception: Sun June 9, 2024 (2-4 pm).

    • “Changing Tides”, group exhibit of i3C artists and guests curated by i3C Rebecca McGee Tuck, at the Hopkinton Center for the Arts, Hopkinton MA - July 3 to Aug 29, 2024 - Opening reception: Fri July 12, 2024 (5:30-7:30 pm).

 

Till next time…

That is so beautiful what you say… There is a strong meditative feeling I get into when I am working in those marks/dots… There is a feeling of humbleness and I am aware of that sentiment you describe of feeling small in the infinite universe… Thanks for sharing ❤️
