Project Space Mural 2015 (Day Four)

Aloha Friends!

Day four of my Salem Art Association Project Space timelapse mural took a wonderful turn today! Not only did my imagery take us to England but it happened on 6/26! The day of SCOTUS! I am so pleased about the supreme court's ruling on gay marriage! #loveislove! There is still a lot of work to do and as an ally I will continue to support the trans and LGBTIQ community but what a truly wonderful step forward. Aloha!



So at the very end of my day when I was trying to figure out how to unite two bits of cloth I was able to paint a bird and symbolize this monumental decision (sometimes in art you just have to go with it). Mahalo to all those who stopped by and talked to me about it! Salem is a city full of love and support. #lovewins

Project Space Mural 2015 (Day Three)

Aloha Friends!

Day three was another long day and I am starting to feel a little worn out. Luckily for me I had some lovely people stop by and visit which makes the day all the more enjoyable and I don't end up just talking to myself. I am happy to say I visited Japan in today's mural and it brought back all kinds of beautiful memories. Tomorrow my imagery will be heading to England and I am very excited to see what happens. Thanks for looking! Be sure to check back soon for the final video!

Project Space Mural 2015 (Day Two)

Aloha Friends!

Day two of mural painting is pau! This is by far the biggest wall I've ever done! I have been working all day so I'm not even sure what the video will look like. All I know is the lighting in here makes some of the most beautiful shadows I have ever seen. I am really looking forward to editing the final project. Onward to day three!

Project Space Mural 2015 (Day One)

Aloha Friends!

I am very excited to be once again included in Salem Oregon's Salem Art Association's Annual Juried Project Space. This annual showcase and exhibition allows artists time and space to create proposed artwork in a new environment. My project includes using the large walls to create a time lapse mural and when the painting is done, a video. The wall is pretty darn big this year so I've got a lot of work ahead of me! Onward!

Holoholo Artist Statement:

Background:

The Hawaiian word Holoholo can have several meanings. First,it can mean to walk aimlessly or go for a stroll, allowing your feet to lead you and thus letting your mind be free. It also can mean to go for a ride, to drive aimlessly without a set route, letting the journey be the destination. To holoholo is to be free.

Since moving to Hawaii several years ago I often find myself wandering, no longer a resident of Oregon the state of my birth, but also not fully accepted as a resident of my new state either. I am constantly crossing oceans to find new places and seek a sense of belonging.

Holoholo is also very fitting for how I choose to paint the gallery space. Instead of painting one portrait or one static image I instead paint continuously for several days. I film myself painting and afterwards compress the film into a few short minutes. These moving images allow me to better express my travels, my wanderlust and to fully explore what it means to holoholo. The painting is the journey, not the destination.

Project Space:

The imagery for this mural is influenced by the most recent places I have traveled and specifically the connection to the natural landscape as I experienced it in each place.

For this work I will include Hawaii (where I live, therefore it is always my starting point as long as reside there), Japan, England and Australia. I am including these locations because they represent me as a resident, tourist and artist and are the places I will have traveled to and from in 2015. I will end the mural with Oregon imagery since it will have been, up to that moment, my last travel destination.
