Happy to announce that I was accepted into the Romeo Guild of Art's online Stay At Home exhibit at the Starkweather Arts Center. The two pieces accepted:
GEN 7 SORROW
This piece was created to help bring attention to how we presently choose to either support or deny sustainability can impact the future generation’s environmental existence. A Native American concept that “urges the current generation of humans to live and work for the benefit of the seventh generation into the future” was the inspiration for this piece. How we consume natural resources and continue to put convenience over sustainability through all the plastics we use on a daily basis will affect the future’s environmental health. “Eco Baby” represents the seventh generation and depicts how they will have to carry the burden of our consumption and waste disposal choices on their backs.
This mixed media collage is an exploration of the mandala form. I was inspired by a quote from Rumer Godden: “There is an Indian proverb that says that everyone is a house with four rooms: A physical, a mental, an emotional and a spiritual. Most of us tend to live in one room most of the time, but unless we go into every room, every day even if only to keep it aired, we are not a complete person.”
