Well, I am finally back, much refreshed from my break and I must tell you, I hadn’t intended to be away from the blog for a month. If any one has checked in during that time, I bet you have wondered what I have been up to… I have been completing my third and last big project of the summer and then I got to get lost on Cape Cod for a week. (It was bliss!)
This mysterious project has been a dream of mine for longer than I can say and I am so very happy and proud to announce a solo exhibition of multi-sensory art work at the Nalanda Galleries at Naropa University. Some of you may know that my first love is painting and that I had a small solo show this January in Boulder, but to present this new and exciting art form at Naropa is truly amazing. Now, what is multi-sensory art, you ask? I am presenting a group of new paintings as well as the aroma ‘sculptures’ that express the same textures, colors, structure and emotional impact as the images. It is art for the eyes and art for the nose that is relational to one another. I guess you could say that you can come smell the paintings…but it won’t smell like oil, turpentine or damar varnish.
The show is called Quintessence: Multi-Sensory. I love the early alchemical referencing that comes along with perfume and how it is so closely aligns itself to the paintings and their esoteric feel.
The show will be up until October 8. I’m beyond excited about it. More to come… I’m glad to be back! 🙂
