Connections of Life and Death
October 27th - November 22nd
“Connections of Life and Death” featuring the glorious multi-media work of Carson Abbert and the whimsical ceramics of Veronica Arquilevich Guzman.
As the warm light of summer and autumn fades, Carson explores the ways in which his abstract pieces can reference the joy and ephemerality of life.
With a playful focus on bright colors and various painterly techniques, his work evokes spontaneity and excitement. As Carson’s Xs and Os symbolize human connection, his multi-media process of painting and collage is where the real energy comes from; striking a balance between randomness and order to create a metaphor for life’s celebrated twists and turns.
For this show, Carson’s artworks represent LIFE: Tender. Bold. Unexpected. Gentle. Goofy. Intimate. He feels that there isn’t much time. Celebrate it all! Remember the kisses! Hold onto those moments when you are closest to those you love!
Veronica creates one-of-a-kind ceramic pieces, using a wheel or a slab and then transforming the results into whimsical animals and nature inspired pieces.
In this exhibition she explores the idea that the human race knows that its existence is ephemeral; that we cannot begin to understand, and celebrate the essence of life, without also acknowledging the inevitability of DEATH.
