Piece description from the artist
Equilibrium. A question of balance. As we move through life and it's unpredictable, ever-changing scenarios, there is a need to strive for stability, for serenity, for balance… equilibrium. When this state is attained (although usually temporary), it feels comforting and strengthening and as if everything is right with the world.
Making art and music has been a life-long practice for Jody Katopothis, and the relationship between these two expressions has become an integral part of her creative explorations. Although each has unique qualities, the two are fully intertwined, complementing, inspiring and informing each other. Her paintings reflect various recurring themes, which are interpreted and reinterpreted over time. These themes include family and ancestral lines, nature's organic beauty, the human organization of nature, and the evolution of humankind from a cultural and spiritual perspective.
