OPENING TODAY! My artwork Catalonia XVI, 2013, acrylic on paper, 25”x 31” (63,5x 79 cm) inspired by my trips to Catalonia. “Either enlarged sections of Catalonian maps or of the street of Barcelona crisscross the sky, suggesting me—in collage style—Gaudi’s mosaics; or the free lines of Miro’s or Picasso’s abstract language”. On view in my solo exhibition Almost 20 at Saint Asaph Gallery. This retrospective exhibition (2009 to the present) recognizes the celebration of living and working in art in the US for almost 20 years.
The opening reception is today Friday April 26, 6- 7:30 pm. 27 Conshohocken State Road, Bala Cynwyd PA 19004.
/ Hoy es la inauguración de mi exposición Almost 30. Esta es una retrospectiva (2009- al presente) celebrando mis casi 30 años viviendo y trabajando en arte en USA. Esta pintura está inspirada en mis viajes a Cataluña. “Ampliadas secciones de mapas de Cataluña y de las calles de Barcelona, se cruzan en el cielo, sugiriéndome-en estilo collage- Los mosaicos de Gaudí , o las líneas libres del arte abstracto de Miró o de Picasso “
#fbf I was drawing and painting as soon as my motor skills allowed it. My mom was very trusting to let a three year old run loose with paints. Thank you mom 😌 also apparently that was my art hat. Lol when did you guys first start “arting” ?
Definition of "used": be or become familiar with someone or something through experience.
I "used" to take photos everyday
I "used" to be more connected with my friends
I "used" to complete things
I "used" to work at a 9-5 job where I had community around me
I "used" to be excited about planning things
I "used" to be less anxious
But what about the thing I "used" to do that weren't that great?
I "used" to not know myself very well
I "used" to put stock in social media and its validation
I "used" to scroll mindlessly - instagram, reddit, etc
I "used" to go on long trips and go go go
I "used" to get extremely distracted having others around me in the workplace
I "used" to never feel grounded and move to a new place on a whim
I have come a long way. A lot of these things are neither negative nor positive, and maybe somewhere along the way I forgot that it's okay that I've changed and turned into a different person, so these things I "used" to do not longer suit who I am now. But maybe my brain can't decipher that difference, and sees it as failure. (which I know is not true)
I am where I am today because I took a different path and decided what was best for me. I am grateful for those who have supported me along the way and taught me the things I needed in order to arrive: here.
Your daily reminder that you are not defined by your past. Take care of that person inside of you that is existing only in this very moment.
