I'm honored to be selected for BLUE PLANET EXHIBITION

BLUE PLANET is an art exhibition scheduled at SOMARTS, San Francisco, CA from June 18 to June 30, 2010. It is running concurrent with Elements: An Eco-Art Conference, a visual conversation with artists and other professionals concerned about local and global environmental issues affecting our planet. (Sponsored by the Pacific Region Women’s Caucus for Art)

This exhibition was juried by Kim Abeles internationally acclaimed public artist known for her extensive work concerning environmental and social issues.

Artists Reception is on Saturday, June 26 from 5:00 to 7:00 pm at SOMArts Cultural Center, 934 Brannan Street, San Francisco, CA 94103. Catalogues will be available for purchase at the show.

Here is a little preview of my submissions.

Zero Point Field XI speaks to the micro and macro relationships of water in the human body and the earth. It is oil and encaustic on panel.Sacred Anatomy I is a rendering of the human torso in motion. It aims to express the fluidity and movement of water within the energy field of the human form. It is mixed media and ink.

Personal Statement: These two abstract renderings were inspired by the fact that the adult human body is between 55 and 60% water, (blood contains almost 70% water) while the surface of planet earth is covered by 70% ocean water. Many preindustrial cultures around the globe acknowledged the interconnected relationship between humankind and mother earth. Our similar water ratio offers an important consideration: that the condition and ultimate fate of the earth and all of humankind are one and the same.

There are many of us who believe we are on the cusp of a paradigm shift that advocates a return to holistic health and healing on a personal, communal and global scale. The micro/macro energetic similarities between human and global anatomy are all at once metaphorically poetic and scientific. While acknowledging Water as life sustaining Source—I offer these paintings as universal shamanic meditations towards health and healing.
