I'm excited to announce that my piece "The Rosette of Division" will be a part of the group show INSIGHT: 2020 at CAMIBAart Gallery! The exhibition will be on view November 28th - December 26th, 2020. The gallery remains open by appointment only. Location: 6448 Hwy 290 E., Suite A102, Austin, TX 78723.
About My Piece:
The Allegory of Good and Bad Government is a series of twenty digital painting and mixed media works printed on aluminum hexagons called rosettes. The rosettes are arranged as diptychs in which the virtues and vices of American government, expressed as elaborate geometric symbols, contrast chiaroscuros within a candle-lit gallery space. The Rosette of Division is a governmental vice that sows distrust and shatters the Union.

About the Exhibition:
Without judgement or expectation, we asked our artists to create a work of art responding to the year 2020.
We knew the works would be exceptional in both concept and craft – we were not disappointed. The results can be seen in this exhibition, Insight: CAMIBAart Artists’ Perspectives on 2020, which includes artworks in a wide variety of mediums by 22 artists from the US, Mexico and Cuba. Many of the artists told us that the process was cathartic, while others found it a pleasant distraction. Each artist has provided text describing how or why their work responds to this past year. They address a wide range of topics including:
the ever-present COVID19 pandemic; isolation; depression; fear; rage; loss of life; loss of connection; social distancing; classism & inherent inequality; the elections; political & social division; minorities’ & women’s rights; social justice; economic loss; environmental concerns; hope for the future; search for calmness & peace; and clarity of vision.
Please join us in gaining some insight into a few of the ways people have experienced and responded to 2020. Perhaps you’ll recognize some of the feelings and perhaps you’ll empathize with other’s views.
