Event description

Description

Breathing Universe implies that the universe—both expanding and contracting—is, in some sense, alive. Scientists describe our universe as having resulted from a “singularity”, associated with the Big Bang, about 13.8 billion years ago. Following the initial expansion, the universe cooled to form subatomic particles, atoms. Then, through gravity, came a coalescence of those primordial elements forming dark matter and, subsequently, stars and galaxies.

Kay Watanabe and Anna Bonshek have explored this expansive topic through drawing, printmaking and 3-D forms. Their art celebrates the potential of human imagination, creativity, investigation, and a vision for future possibilities.

Kay creates works using water, air and planets as motifs. Kay will talk about her creative practice, printmalking techniques and ideas, and how her work considers how humans have used, co-existed, destroyed, restored and conserved nature during their relatively short history against billions of years of the history of the universe. Breathing Universe is Watanabe's third exhibition along the lines of this theme.

Anna presents a selection from a series of 10 large format drawings Homage to Brahman (1.5 metres x 2.7 metres) and her prints series 10 Structures of Knowledge. Some of the latter are featured on the site World Peace Artists, highlighting work by artists who want to support world peace at https://worldpeaceartists.com/products/10-structures-of-knowledge-1?variant=24927312336. Anna will explain how her work was inspired by Vastu architecture—which takes into account the relationship of individual life to cosmic life, the planets and celestial bodies, and how she is interested in mathematical form.
