I have a solo exhibition up at Omi Gallery // Impact Hub in downtown Oakland, now through to the end of February, 2018.
The work for "Catch Them Feels" spans the past 5 years of my creative process, bringing together a selection of my assembalge wall sculpture/altars, an ongoing series of digital reinterpretations of my large-scale installation works, and a brand new series of drawings that I created over the past month during a residency in Joshua Tree, California, plus a site-specific mural that covers the interior of Omi Gallery and spans the entire glass facade of the Impact Hub building on Broadway in downtown Oakland.
Born out of ritual and communion, these works explore a liminal place: the tender space between death & rebirth, between hope & despair, between love & heartbreak. Utilizing the body as an altar, a vessel, a conduit for transformation, Tigre Bailando calls forth new mythologies through the invocation of ancient memories. Catch Them Feels is a collection of medicine songs that leans into the darkness and pain of our world to discover healing and transcendence.
