Reflecting Passion We Never Imagined...
I created a multimedia art installation running in Portland, OR and online you may have heard about. It's called LIL GALLERIES
). It's my way of offering a new way to see photography; as an experience.
In the brick and mortar space you can see, hear, feel each piece. It's emotional, sensorial, personal and intimate. And if you can't go to the custodian closet in Portland you can still enjoy them online. This is a true G+ creation: everyone whose work is shown now - and upcoming (we're adding an artist each month) - are photographers and friends I've met right here on Google+.This is one of the images from my own show "Constructs to Freedom"
.. "Reflecting Passion We Never Imagined" are the spoken words behind it. I think of this piece as part of my vision statement for the entire gallery project. You see, I believe that much of why we DON'T live the life of our dreams boils down to the limitations of the conditioning factors, disappointments, fears, belief systems that we've taken on. We carry these little ditties around, defend them and our right to have them. They govern our lives and they're not even of our own making. Maybe they came from parents, teachers, whatever - but they don't represent who we really are and what we really want. In that sense, they are even ours
. Yet we act upon them as if they are and wonder why we don't feel fulfilled. I think that to thrive, we need to listen to our soul's desire.
To the things that inspire us... and makes our hearts sing. I think that's what draws us together here on G+... we're a community of artists who are all seeking that freedom. LIL GALLERIES
is my way of creating that particular brushstroke in the physical world. It reflects the way I see, hear, feel and my own art... and it allows me to present others' work in a whole new way. It's been a revelation.
It was my soul's vision to create this... and my heart's desire.
I hope it inspires you to act upon yours.
