Upsidedown and Sideways

The eleven paintings and drawings shown at Art League Houston in Adaptation are complex, visually intricate abstractions that metaphorically chart processes of change and growth encountered in daily life. Obstacles, challenges, shifts in perspective and in circumstance often necessitate flexibilty, resilient, and new ways of problem-solving, whether we like it or not. Adaptation visually investigates experiences that arise during times of transition—from the disorientation of the unfamiliar, the nostalgia and sadness associated with the recent past, to the heady experiences of discovery and possibility that a new environment offers. The works here show a state of flux that hovers between the unfamiliar and the magical, as new information is assimilated into old, resulting in patterns and forms reminiscent of nature and of the manmade, but which are not quite recognizable. The paintings, to me, are all about how change can bring into focus who we are.
