36 x 36 Collage on Canvas,
This is one of my pieces that I would say I surrender to, one that I totally allow my dailiness to influence the outcome. At the time I was starting this piece on the news the talk about same sex marriages and getting them passed was the message being spread. I'm not exactly sure what the details where that went on....I listened and then brought it into my heart and trusted the gut on what I believe about this world.(with a slight attitude at best expressed here) I also was going through a exploratory moment where I wanted to expand even more in the unknown of my art making and process. Taking from a small sketchbook,
Spring boarding from my own sketch as a starting point and then allowing the space to be what it is when it comes to a larger format is and was the goal on this piece. Little did I know that I really opened up on it I'm sure you can see, Letting go of the meaning of "perfect" and letting the imperfect be perfect in what was stretched in this piece...
How can I say this but to do it....I'm blessed to be able to create, express, still though not know what for and where it's going...but to be present in it while it happens.
Tonight I will be heading into the city to be part the 10th Anniversary Celebration for 4Art Inc. and to take part in exhibiting the collage above and the excitement of all the expressive exhibits going on this weekend in the Zhou B Art Center and Bridgeport area. Always scared about driving in the city at night but I think the excitement of the event will over shadow that so I won't even feel it.
Tonight...1029 W. 35th Street Chicago, IL. 6pm-10pm
Join us if you want to fill you well with culture....there sure will be an over spillage of it there tonight plenty for everyone to see, hear and feel.
