OCTOBER 21 – NOVEMBER 7
IMPRINTED OVER TIME
I’ve been thinking about how the brain, cultures, beliefs, patterns etc, get imprinted and how to change that. I’ve been researching (imprinting) various artists, reading spiritual text from many cultures, and reading scientific journals on the brain. So what impressions will be left from these past few years of this pandemic, unrest, reckoning, and cultural upheaval? I’ve been thinking about the state of stress on the world, as I’m sure most of us are. How much information can we carve into our brains and bodies until we pop? Social media, news, etc. have become overwhelming. Where is the release, or the rest? Madness? Addiction? Depression? We all know the story. At some point while in isolation I chose to get off all social media and focus on roses. This was for many reasons. For one I wanted to clear my head of all bombardment. I needed a mediation and a challenge and roses are a difficult flower to draw. Repetition was useful as a practice. Roses have many meanings to almost every culture. They are ephemeral and change over time.
