Aspects of Solitude

Visit here:
This exhibit runs through June 16th, 2013. I have been so busy this weekend, but was able to make it to the Sunday opening party to see the lovely works, greet the artists and snap a few party pics.

Morgana Nagorski's press information in part states: ...
"A fabulous new exhibition, sponsored by LUMIPro, opens @ Palais Orleans Gallery Complex this weekend.  Amona Savira and Harbor Galaxy show us Aspects of Solitude.
The images are intelligent, thought provoking, sensitive and well . . . just gorgeous.

It is such a pleasure to host this exhibition by two such talented artists...
  (The opening events were this Saturday and Sunday@ Palais Orleans Gallery Complex)

The images are about all the lonely nights, waiting for nobody . . . in solitude.
And those early morning hours when sleep escapes us and the mind wanders, reviewing the decisions that define our waking life.
The artists' statement explaining the thoughts behind the show
”My face in the bathroom mirror
has white streaks down it.
I rinse the face and return to bed.
Tomorrow I am going to visit my mother. ”
(from The Glass Essay by Anna Carson)
Just that, to look in the bathroom mirror, seeing herself and only her, no one else there, from a sleepless night and a numb body. The hard light hits her face, head full of dreams and memories.
Solitude – the good and bad of it.
Of course there is a liberating feeling of being by herself, but now she was leaning towards the negative.
More like lived life, like feeling lonely either in the midst of a crowd or by choice.
All the lonely nights, waiting for nobody…in solitude."
