'Sleeping Giants', a solo show of recent watercolor and ink landscapes, opened at Makers Gallery and Studio May 6th, up through May 27th.
This body of work reflects the dynamic between control and chaos in our lives. How we reconcile opposing inclinations and views is an ongoing practice. How do we integrate diametrical thoughts and emotions into one healthy being?
These pieces are created in a way that reflect this exploration. Using the conscious creation of a sketched framework, intuitive and emotional application of paint, and identification of fragments using ink to contain and shape; it is my attempt at organizing chaos.
Themes of freedom, containment, mortality, remembrance, protection, and surrender, flow through each painting. Myth, archetypes, and nature embody what are innately human realities. These Sleeping Giants are the physical manifestation of processing internal and external conflict to arrive at a peaceful and balanced whole.
