Phenomenon MMXII Art Show by Gretchen Mars
Phenomenon MMXII a is a solo show that is currently on exhibition at Glashaus San Diego. This series of sculptures is based off the ideas and concepts of time ending and beginning in the year 2012.
I enjoy abstract expressionism and cubism and thought of these styles as I created this series of sculptures. I am pushing the limits of these styles that are usually painted on a canvas in to a 3-dimensional space.
My inspiration comes from dance and the composition and rhythm of music. Many musicians today speak of current events. I listened to artists such as Kendrick Lamar, Lupe Fiasco, Kanye West and Jay Z while making these pieces. Their conscious lyrics inspired me to think differently about the world we live in.
Hopefully this artwork encourages individuals to think more about time and help them in how they decide to live their lives. Ancient biblical and Mayan prophecies, Galactic Alignment, and high power raises many questions and concerns. I hope everyone can make positive decisions in order to be the best they can be with the time they are here on Earth.
