- Elisabeth Setten:
Ancient cultures regarded trees as spiritual beings able to elevate the human consciousness to a higher plane and deepen one’s awareness of the inner self.
As an artist from West Marin, I find myself pondering this question: Who am I as a human being in nature and what is my role within it?
In a spontaneous collaboration (see video), I attach a sumi inked brush to a tree’s branch and allow the tree’s painting to unfold. The resulting abstractions produce a unique natural vocabulary that invites us to explore the intricacies of the natural world and reconsider our selves within it.
- Lark Calderon-Gomez:
Married to photographer, Dan Gomez, mixed media artist, Lark Calderon-Gomez has always had a strong affection for photography. It was only natural to embark on a series of collaborative work together.
- Stan Gibbs:
Stas will feature abstract sketches in paint.more
