SANCTUARY is an exhibition of spiritually inspired paintings, drawings, and sculptures.
The works (utilize, incorporate) both traditional symbols of religions as harnessed by the individual artist, as well as abstractions from less literal interpretations of faith. The word "sanctuary" is defined as "a sacred place" or the "holiest part of a sacred place." But it is also defined as "a place of refuge and protection." For many artists, their "place of refuge" is immersion in the creative process.
SELECTED HAND-BOUND ART JOURNALS IN STUDIO
Observe, absorb, make, repeat. wash, lather, rinse, repeat. A slide show visit around my studio on any given day. Continually making new works and finding old works, painting, prints sketches, a library of images. Spirit animals return for cyclical visits to feed the muse. Spirit & the Mystic of nature a constant; The source and seed vein for my process. All at once abstract, representational and symbolic like a dream.
The studio is a bit of a wonderland for me.
