About the Exhibition
What is expressed in this small selection of works emanates from tender voices; better equipped than most to express the one quality humankind probably needs the most in this moment: love.
They make me think of canaries in a coal mine and, their message, an invitation to embrace our humanity.
There is a sense of mystery, bravery, playfulness, sometimes ambivalence in each of them, which allows the viewer to create the meaning most needed for the one that sees. An invitation to explore how much we have in common with each other, yes… I know… this is easier said than done. These are feelings most of us find difficult to experience without judgement: joy, sorrow, kindness.
To our well behaved, self-conscious, society, political correctness is more important than honesty, belonging to the tribe becomes safer than walking our own path.
To look at our lives with vulnerability and truthfulness, is risky… why? Because that requires a personal exploration.
These artworks reflect just that, transmitting qualities experienced by being human, expressed by artists that have no qualms sharing their depth with us.
May all of us be inspired by their courage, honesty and capacity to feel.
