MY SOLO SHOW: 'BRIGHTER DAYS' OPENS MAY 22nd
I have spent the last the last several months working on this body of work. I started creating the first paintings last summer, as the world around me seemed heavier than it ever had: the COVID19 pandemic, racial injustice leading to social unrest, a US president who divided our nation, and wild fires that threatened the region I live in - all upset the balance of life as I knew it. I had to find a way through the intensity of it all. So with this series I wanted to look forward to a brighter future and found myself pulling away from negative thoughts to instead look toward a world of hope and love, and a vision of coming out of the pandemic - and these tumultuous times - to a new, brighter and better world. Songs and song lyrics rolled through my head, and I took inspiration from these songs of togetherness, peace, hope and love - and words that imagined a more just and harmonious world. And as the news became more gloomy, it became clearer that in order to move beyond our current state, All We Need Is Love.
