Great Mysterious Heart
January 7 - February 12
Relationships compel interdisciplinary abstract artist Megan Prince to create; relationships between people, to belongings, and to the earth. We are all tied together by relationship. Her work points to the similarities we all share and the intrinsic desire we have of being together.
Prince’s floor sculptures, Jean Bodies, are constructed from donated worn jeans, cut up and hand knit together. Jeans are the vehicle used to look at similarities and differences in communities. The process of donation creates the relational element, inviting and empowering people to participate in the conversation to examine their relationships to their community and belongings, as well as consider the environmental impact.
With the works on paper, Communities, Prince explores aloneness, solidarity and togetherness. In Communities, the artist plots soft graphite stars on the mixed media works behind organic black forms in oil pastel, signifying our immediate people groups, and semi-circles of blue gouache, representing our earth. Each element points to levels of togetherness; we are not only in community with each other, but connected across our world and in the larger universe too.
Exhibition Dates: January 7-February 12, 2022.
