It’s an honor for someone to purchase your work, especially if the subject matter and visuals strike a core with them.
I met the owner of this piece, Joni, randomly at a pizza place in the area. Our boyfriends noticed they wore the same hiking shoes, then we all started chatting, then exchanged info via social media. By that evening, I heard from Joni saying she had been dreaming of this art and that she wanted to purchase it. How is that?!
This piece is all about transition and the struggle to want to heal and grow after hardship and trauma, but in that stubbornness, you finally recognizing how you got this far – with resilience!
This piece is from my upcoming book of art and poetry entitled Without Fear and Full of Love.
I’m excited to help her hang this piece in her new home!
Natural selection is the key process in evolution. A natural change in traits over time.According to Darwin, throughout the lives of individuals, their genomes interact with their environments to cause variations in traits and may eventually result in speciation.
Robert Henri stated: “Art is the inevitable consequence of growth”. As artists and creators we are growing, and eventually, over time, specializing in at least one discipline or process.The subject of the work featured in “Natural Selection” centers around metaphors, interpretations and relationships to the natural world or mutations of natural subjects.The various artists selected for this exhibit are specialized and evolved, open to experimentation within, (and outside), their respective mediums.
Russell Ritell, Herman Roggeman, Meghan Spiro, Laianna Ferruggia, Jerika Broussard, Melissa Robin, Jack Rusinek and Lindsey Buckley are local Hudson Valley creatives, exhibiting together at Bau gallery to create this unique show.
