MOMENTS, ECHOES, ELABORATIONS: VISIONS OF THE CENTRAL COAST
Oct. 4th - Nov. 1st, B. Anthony & Company Jewelers
Opening Reception on Friday, Oct. 6th from 6 - 9pm
674 Higuera St. San Luis Obispo, Ca 93401
For my first SLO "Art After Dark" showing I've been focusing on creating a series of small mixed media drawings on wood that focus on the socio-economic realities of living in one of the most scenically impressive places in the world.
The Central California Coast, with it's rich agricultural resources, Mediterranean climate, and natural beauty, is a constant source of wonder and inspiration to me. Watching (and participating in, as an architectural designer) it's development to accommodate higher and higher population density has been a really interesting and challenging experience. For this show I have brought together a collection of small works exploring the connections between human beings--their psychic and energetic as well as physical forms--within the larger environmental contexts of our existence.
I combine abstraction and representational source images to create a dialogue between the need for housing development and human social connection, and the inherent aesthetic satisfaction of the wild and open landscapes that still lie within short drives of the urban centers on the coast here. They are hybrid works--part imagination and part observation, part engagement and part detachment--products of a meditative process that I am compelled to maintain in order to remain functional in a society and reality that seems to become stranger and stranger as technology, mediation and consumption continue to encroach on and define the experiences of our daily lives.

“And all at once she [Harmony] understood what myth is, understood that myth is the precedent behind every action, its invisible, ever-present lining.”
- Roberto Calsasso
This exhibtion explores the motif of human/plant hybridity as a way of examining the idea of consciousness evolving, if not a conscious evolution. // In my work I've always drawn extensively on mythological tropes, though I feel that I've given them a fresh stylistic and conceptual rinse vis-à-vis the millenial anxiety of this generation, and the eschatological promise/premises of our increasingly surreal and dystopian contemporary vistas. // The trees were our first gods, and in this work, and in this time, I feel we may yet have much to learn from them. // In this way, it feels important to look at the old stories, our psychic and spiritual roots, to search there for what psychologists might call the Self, (what is left of the soul (what the soul has become)), and to search there also for meaning and beauty, truth, understanding, possible ways forward. To me, it has been one of the most important things for a long time now.
