Current Art Exhibition: "As the Flowers Tell It"
"As the Flowers Tell It", Sara Fakhraie
August 29 - December 16
Reception: October 7; 6-8pm
University Libraries Gallery, 1st Floor
These watercolors are a product of my summer spent at the Black Hills Playhouse in Custer State Park, SD. As I took strolls in the evening light of off hours, I was enamored by the mysteriousness of flowers and trees. In these works I tried to capture the effect of light, temperature, and clime that renders and conveys a feeling of eeriness. Although these works are different in size, subject, and execution from my past works, I believe they convey the underlining theme of transformation, growth, conflict, and trauma. I capture the image of evening woods as they are used in many fairytales to represent the more dark, confusing and horrific events of our youth.
