After a long awaited collaboration between my sister and I, we have successfully created our first beautiful art work. We, amongst other insanely talented artists, will have our work for the "tobeyou" exhibition for Light Grey Art Lab's 5th anniversary show.
"Tobeyou" is about a personal narrative, tales, storytelling and memory. The exhibition opens March 3rd @ 7-10 pm. If anyone is in the area, it will definitely be worth checking out.
In case anyone was curious, here is a little bit about us as the artists and our piece.
My sister and I are polar opposites on several different levels. She thinks in 2D and I think in 3D, so when we have discussions, sometimes its not easy to translate our thoughts in a way the other will understand. When it comes to the subject of art and death however, we share the same heart and brain. On death, it isn't necessarily in the glamorous, witchy-vampy, ominous presence with a sprinkle of zombie gore, kind of way. Although, yes.. "please sir, I want some moar". But apart from hollywood's definition of it, our disposition surrounding the matter on a spiritual level, are one and the same.
Our take on the theme of personal narrative, tales, storytelling and memory, is to bring a beautiful physical and visual experience of how we envision "metanoia".
The term "metanoia" is defined by a profound spiritual conversion, transformation, and change of heart.
Our approach to this was by making a sensory connection between the continuity of rebirth after transformation. By reimagining the traditional ouroboros, we created a stylized version, illustrating a narrative on the inner turmoil of self conflict. This energy is suggested within the whiplash of the body, weaving in and out of the canvas.
