EXHIBITION : “Ancient Tongues & Tales” | 16-Nov-2019 to 12-Jan-2020
I’m so thrilled to be exhibiting two of my artworks alongside the art by some truly fabulous artists including the internationally acclaimed, immensely talented, Toby Froud of the Dark Crystal fame.
✨ The show is on at the whimsical, very magical gallery The Fernie Brae (in Portland ,OR) as part of their “Ancient Tongues & Tales” .
✨ The exhibition opened on 16th November 2019 and will be up through January 12th 2020
“Symbols, story, art… the ways we first discovered how to communicate, to connect.
Hidden in the veins of a leaf, in the silvery slime of a snail, in the shoreline’s shifting pattern… are the memories of worlds we’ve always known but believe we have forgotten.
In our bones, we hold the stories of stars and sand. In our blood, flows the Sacred Wells our ancestors prayed to; we sing the songs of rivers and ocean.
When we forget who we are, we need to call ourselves home. Or perhaps we need to call our home to us.
Art, symbols, story…they call out to our home, to the ancient ones who spoke in the tongue of star, snail, and wind.
How do you sing the song of your ancestors in a stroke of paint? How will you carve the story of your bones into rock, clay, wood?”
So if you find yourself wandering this enchanting neighborhood in Portland, go say hello!
