The Seen & the Unseen: Annie Waldrop

July 3, 2015 – September 26, 2015(This exhibition has passed.)

“A couple of years ago I joined a meditation group. The work in this exhibition reflects concepts gleaned from our discussions. The group primarily focuses on the principles of love and connectedness but our conversations encompass a wide variety of existentialist ideas. “Be the love that you are” is a sort of overall mantra.

“Topics covered include the ego, the divine feminine, inner reflects outer, the healing power of love, the oneness, and the infinite. I feel especially motivated by the idea of focusing on certain “cosmic truths” as a subject for art-making, while also using meditation as a centering tool for things like internal alignment, spontaneous right action, higher thinking, being present, synchronicity, and non judgment. I mention this as these ideas can easily be applied to the creative process. Ultimately, each piece I create acts like a spare reliquary, infused with ritual, mystery and a sense of hope.”
