Some more connections.

After weeks and weeks of work, two nights ago I finally completed four more connectedness paintings for my exhibit that opens this Saturday! Here they are:


Knit V. mixed media. 14" x 11"


Knit VI. mixed media. 14" x 11"



Knit VII. mixed media. 14" x 11"


Knit VIII. mixed media. 14" x 11"

Here is my current artist statement:
I am fascinated by the connections we find in our everyday experiences: from the isolation of communities on the subway, to the solitary experience of introspection, to the feelings of deep communion. How do we think of our place in this world? How do we fit in it?
My work is about the levels of connectedness we feel. I paint, draw, and knit to represent moments of these feelings.


I wish I could be there at the opening this Saturday, but its thousands of miles away. I will be travelling there in a few weeks, so the good news is that I will be at the closing night party!

These are great! I've never seen anything like them -- I love to find some new expression out there, some new mixed media experience like this, and the theme is a very powerful one to me too. It makes me think of all the amazing creative spirits I've met on the blogs, out there scattered around the world in their own little squares of cotton, knitting links to one another.

I find this idea absolutely fantastic!

Do you know about the late anthropologist Gregory Bateson who coined the phrase "the pattern that connects", which is to focus rather on our connections than on the things that differentiate us?
