Title: Fancy Flutter
Size: 24" x 18"
I'm getting ready for my art show at 20th Street Art Gallery in Sacramento for the month of May. I have received a lot of interest in the subject matter of this upcoming exhibition: God's Wings, a collection of collages embracing the grace and beauty of butterflies. This show was purposefully timed to occur in Spring. Now, I was thinking that my collages are philosophically a bit like the butterflies in Spring in that I take something ordinary (magazine papers) and transform it into something of beauty (artwork). This idea got me thinking about transformation in general: transformation of caterpillars into butterflies, Winter into Spring, creative children into creative adults, life into death etc. The ultimate transformation of life into death or eternal life in Heaven is also the subject of a new art project and blog: see www.heavenartproject.blogspot.com for details. I'll add more about this project in this blog later. In the mean time, here are a few photos of some of the artworks that will be available in the May show at 20th Street Art Gallery...ENJOY.
