GREY MATTER || A surrealist female art collection of mostly black & white watercolor and some charcoal, painted on canvases with small pop's of color.
Grey Matter includes regions of the brain involved in sensory perception, such as seeing, hearing, memory, emotions, and speech. This collection explores what's reality and what is fantasy or fallacy, within the mind of a woman. It is meant to take viewers through a spectrum of deep emotions. ‘Grey Matter’ is the female journey of the light and dark frequencies of consciousness, but all human beings can relate to the emotions that it brings forth.
The collection addresses past, present, and future and the human dilemma to balance all three states. Visually the future is represented in images like the half robot half female abstraction that reads, "programmed to think". It questions where we as women are going in the future. Are we programmed to think or will we evolve and act based on our own free will? Images of a broken black heart and an identity covering mask address issues of the past and how internally we all struggle not allow our pasts... alter our present states of consciousness. The collection addressed the present moment in the way the art is digested by the viewer. In a few of the pieces tactile mixed media is used. In "The Mask She Wears" thick white acrylic paint is used to depict the fur of the mask. The art itself is a representation of the present moment prompting viewers to reach out and touch – the HERE and the NOW.
Each piece is very different, but flows together as the journey of self-discovery does. Live NOW. BE present. LET GO of ego. KNOW that it is OK to feel. See your fears as only illusion and embrace every step of the journey that is life.
