ABOUT THE I.C.E EXHIBIT::
“Teal’s Favorites” – 9 sculptures selected from over 60 that I have created in over 7 years of making art in virtual worlds. These 9 are my favorites displayed in a garden landscape. They represent significant turning points, passions, and moments of illumination in my life. More of my art can be seen at Gallery Freenote and Dreamsinger Sculpture Isle.
Usually I do not explain my works. I like to let people experience for themselves. They come from very deeply personal feelings and intuitions, but in the mini retrospective I will do my best to say a few words on each of the selected sculptures.
One of the hardest pieces I ever made in terms of emotional turmoil. This is the “guy” inside that you have to face and rise above to be able to create your art…. and your life.
Kintsugi (Japanese for golden joinery) is the Japanese art of fixing broken pottery with a lacquer resin sprinkled with powdered gold. “When the Japanese mend broken objects, they aggrandize the damage by filling the cracks with gold. They believe that when something’s suffered damage and has a history, it becomes more beautiful.” ~Barbara Bloo
The courage to try again and again, to hope that there is a good relationship out there, even though your history is full of pain.
“Some Cannot Be Mended”
No matter what you do or how much you care, people are responsible for themselves and some just cannot or will not be healed. Its incredibly sad, but its not your fault.
Made for a themed exhibition about Spain, this represents my love for the life force and passion that is Flamenco music and dancing. I live in New Mexico, USA. At our state university, you can actually get a Masters Degree in Flamenco Dancing.
“Hoping for Rain”
Hope and patience during the “dry spells”… what more can I say 🙂
“Gift of the Goddess”
Made for the very first InWorldz Dreamz & Visionz Art Festival. Truly I look at this and think “who made that?” It seemed to come through me rather than of me. It is a meditation on and honoring of all that is creativity and the feminine. It still moves and inspires me as if it was another’s art work.
Driving in the car one day contemplating how odd that seems, I suddenly realized that no matter what my age, or what the future holds, my spirit is always free to fly.
We hold an ideal in our minds and souls. We plan, we seek, we measure. We try and try again but always fall short. The people around us are all a mixture of the wonderful and not so wonderful, each in their own unique combination – as are we. And when all is said, in the end, that is just “perfect”.
