THE EARTH OF (3): Ruptures and Reckonings

THE EARTH OF (3): Ruptures and Reckonings

This Deadline Expired: Sunday, October 10, 2021

The Program will be directed by writers Ginger Teppner and Andrew Helton, two returning Visiting Artists at Arts Letters & Numbers.
Duration of Program: October 11 and runs 5 weeks.

The Earth Of: Ruptures and Reckonings is a collective virtual space of inquiry. Through writing and discourse you will investigate how to manifest and inhabit the fractures that pervade your lives, allowing for the creative space to grow organically through digressions, tangents, musings, and synchronistic linkages.

What does it mean when humanity crosses a threshold of such significance it manifests as a rupture, when the world is on the cusp? The brain wants to organize, filter, and separate out. Yet, beyond the confusion perpetrated by language that fails to adequately define, are spaces. We find meaning when we implicitly inhabit these spaces—gestures that guide the cracks to spread toward shattering. These moments of rupture burst forth from gesture into reckoning, exposing us to what is real and true and essential.

Andrea Lyons'  work is about the home and the materials that are symbolic of it. I have used wood both to paint on and as part of the subject of the painting. The connection of wood as part of the structure of the house and also part of the tree form. The layers of the bark of the tree as related to the layers of skin. The correlation of flesh to wood and other building materials.

I endeavor to find the connection between math and deliberation with nature and randomness. I employ an experimental approach inspired by urban and natural textures, using geometry, patterns, and contrived shapes to create a lyrical, non-narrative statement. My paintings are colorful, contemporary and abstract, often based on musical frequencies, graffiti, architecture and patterns.
