Tonight: A Good Day's Work in the back room of Awaken Coffee 5-9pm
Tomorrow: Embodied Season Workshop at The Hive 10am-12pm
After the workshop on Saturday I'm driving to Lincoln Memorial University to put up a show of new work, here are some thoughts on that. Opening reception will be April 20:
This body of work explores interconnectedness as a rumination on memory, legacy, and cultural ties. Both the materials and process serve as a metaphor for the human experience. As the paintings evolve, first from a memory or from an oral history, they contend with the mysteries and paradox of the creative process and our primal urge toward making meaning. Addair uses pattern, color and imagery to create both dissonance and harmony in exploring her Appalachian background and the complexities of shifting identity.
