Piece description from the artist
I am often struck by the patterns created by the borders and boundaries we lay down to define our space and our lives. Although we are wingless, and must rely on metal birds to carry us, I find flying to be an intoxicating experience. While riding in the sky, there is opportunity for a powerful visual glimpse of our human marks upon the earth.
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.
