I had a delightful visit with DC artist Carlotta Hester at Govinda Gallery this weekend. Ms. Hester is showing a series of limited edition works on paper derived from a selection of pages from her sketchbooks.
"ELEMENTAL JOURNEY conveys her insights and experiences gathered along her journeys through different spaces - whether they are the arts and cultures of other countries, the movements of everyday life, or the interior dimensions of the soul. These themes are translated into Hester’s vocabulary of colors, text, and objects. Hester's “collected bits of life” are arranged into explorations of material, techniques, and ideas, all of which produce an imagery in her work that is rich with symbolism."
Sketchbooks are an integral part of Hester’s life, a portable home for memories, thoughts, and dreams.
Elemental Journey continues through May 31, 2008.
