An ALG Collective Art Show
A Message from annie
“Anima Mundi epitomizes the principle ‘Accept all. Reject none.’ Diversity is celebrated, multiplicity is honored, and nothing is denied embrace.”
In the spirit of Anima Mundi, I challenged myself to accept each idea for this year's show as valuable and worthy and to give it space in the real world, either as a sketch, drawing, or painting. Aside from creating a ton of work and it being the most authentic work I've ever made, this process changed the way I saw myself. No longer were some parts good and some bad. Rather I began to see how each part, both in me and in my art, was valuable and necessary to the greater journey of realizing who I am.
The pieces in this show reflect this journey and mirror the tension and triumphs of the year. I combine drawing with painting, old with new, and fact with fiction to create something entirely its own.
With my whole heart I accept all and reject none of this wild, wonderful, & beautiful life.
