Innermost Second International Becoming Artist Exhibition was a site-specific exhibition that took place in the White Pearl Gallery, Prague, Czech Republic May 2018. Set in a white walled gallery, in the beautiful city of Prague, five of my paintings from the Reorient Home Exhibition plus three additional paintings were displayed along with works of four other artists from the US and Australia. The exhibition was a culmination of a year long project with Jessica Serran at BecomingArtist.com. Jessica described the event as “a one-of-a-kind, intimate art event and experience- a public ritualized ceremony designed to open up space for universal emotion, personal vulnerability and genuine dialogue. In this special visual art exhibition, five artists reveal their innermost worlds - their thoughts, feelings, how they think and what they believe.” It was a wonderful expansive experience that helped me proclaim the artist that I am and still becoming today.
Reorient Home Exhibition Project was a site-specific exhibition that took place in December 2017. Set in my living room, the work centered around 27 paintings accompanied by an audio of recited poetry which enhanced the overall experience by engaging multiple senses. The work was the culmination of my struggles to transition from where I was to where I want to be at this point in my life. By assessing the things I chose to paint, and stating what the images meant to me in poetry, I was able to re-orient myself, to find my position again in relation to my surroundings as I transition from the co-dependency of motherhood toward independent empty-nester.
