Concept

Rich tapestries are woven when civilizations connect to share cultural traditions and experiences. The fusion of diverse cultures is not unlike the exchanging of gifts; gifts of art, food, and music enrich our two countries. Historically human experience has reached its greatest heights when connectivity has linked groups and an open exchange of ideas occurred.

Artist's Statement

Historically, civilizations have reached their greatest heights when connectivity linked countries, encouraging the open exchange of ideas. Rich tapestries are woven when civilizations share cultural traditions.

 

In the triptych “Plus Ultra”  (Go Beyond), I explore the problematic question: love of homeland versus patriotic nationalism with its isolating repercussions. 

 

The blending of diverse cultures is an exchange of gifts. Muro Compartido, recognizes the gifts of art, food, fashion, music and religion while acknowledging the important migration paths and wildlife corridors which link our shared fragile desert ecosystems.

Concepto artístico:

La historia confirma que las civilizaciones que alcanzaron su mayor desarrollo son aquellas que intercambiaron ideas. El maravilloso entramado de un tapiz se logra cuando las civilizaciones comparten tradiciones culturales.

Obras a exhibir:

  • Plus Ultra (Tríptico)

  • Un Muro Compartido

 

En el tríptico “Plus Ultra” exploro la interrogante problemática: el amor al país contra el nacionalismo patriótico y sus repercusiones separatistas.


La mezcla de diversas culturas es un intercambio de obsequios. “Un Muro Compartido” explora el regalo del arte, la comida, la moda, la música y la religión al mismo tiempo que reconoce los senderos y rutas migratorias y que unen los ecosistemas desérticos que compartimos.

“Howsam’s paintings are joyous, exuberant,and intuitive, brimming with texture and energy, inspired by the natural beauty of the Colorado landscape.”
