Inspirare was conceived in response to the aftermath of destructive acts, heightened by the terrorist attacks in Paris, France, and those ongoing throughout the world. Lives changed by experience of loss and atrocity.
As a culture, can we make changes toward peaceful resolution? Can we find a way to rescript our experience or that of a community consciousness through art? This installations goal is to evoke change and reconciliation and signify the return to a state of balance.
Large luminous color panels of black, white, yellow, red and turquoise fly twenty-nine feet above the viewing audience undulating with the rhythm of the wind. Defining space, contrasting architecture, they possess the enduring elements of time. Present from sunrise to sunset this active canvas moves and merges with the elements of sun, rain, wind and darkness revealing a compositional mix of color and light. Inspirare signifies a historic structure, Hendricks Chapel, a place of memorial and tenant of peace.
