The Visual and Performing Arts Event will be held from 5-8 p.m., Friday, Jan. 25, at the Gallery.
“Two Category 5 hurricanes in 2017 wrought havoc to our precious island, St. John, U.S. Virgin Islands. My ‘subjects’ had necessarily changed, in either substance and/or spirit; subjects that I painted or related to in one way or another. I observed instead fractured aggregates that took on identities and forces of their own — their shapes of color, texture, value and personality — over time recomposing and reforming into different, perhaps unique, entities.
“Evident in landscapes, seascapes, structures, “things,” people, relationships and communities, the transitions moved/move at various speeds, from explosive to crawling, and perhaps still dragging. The practical act of creativity involved in this re-envisioning of bits and pieces, of our essence, is transformative. As unimaginable as it may be, from the insanity of “Irmaria” may emerge… serenity.” — Kimberly Boulon
