Gayle H. Seely spoke during the opening reception of EMERGING, Fairweather’s August exhibition.
“As a four-year emerging artist I am happy to identify with the Latin word emerge. A combination of the sounds ‘e’ for out, and ‘mergere’ meaning dip or immerse. Such an appropriate description of my process: filling all sides of the box with colors, shapes, textures, emotion.
Turning it around and around to see what develops…bringing to mind the Mobius strip:
Discovered by the German mathematician August Ferdinand Mobius in the early 1800’s. “A surface with only one side, formed by giving a half twist to a narrow, rectangular strip of paper and then pasting its two ends together.”
Give it a try…let the twist be room for creativity and apply the idea to your day, to enliven your moments.” Gayle H. Seely
